Alum Bay sands

After our needles speed boat trip we have another jaunt up and down the multi coloured sands of Alum Bay.

Alum Bay is unique in having 21 recognised shades of colour and gifts made from these were presented to Queen Victoria in 1860.

Its cliffs are a range of browns, oranges, blacks and creams tumbling down to a pebble beach.

Then it’s back on the cliff lift and floating back up to the top to carry on with our tour.

With last looks back down to the turquoise waters that are looking a little Mediterranean.

World traveller, proud auntie, bit of a liability.
