Nice beach for hiring some equipment and trying a water-based activity. My daughter and I tried stand-up paddle boarding. We enjoyed it.

Great beach - perfect for a swim although need to do this at mid to high tide. beautiful sand and very clear water. Lots of shade for sitting under all day and close enough to accommodation to be able to go and get lunch/drinks/snacks if you need. Big enough to be interesting for beach combing. Beautiful of an early morning... More

We had Putney almost to ourselves and toddled off for food and drinks at the Haven whenever we felt inclined. One for the bucket list for sure.

Spent an hour or so on this fabulous beach, water beautiful, lovely colour. Very safe to swim in and sand easy to walk on at low tide. Never saw beach at high tide so can't comment. There is come cabins running along the edge and a tavern of sorts

Putney Beach on Great Keppel is one of the best beaches in the world. At high tide it is a dream. Just above it is a bar/bistro which gives you at night a great backdrop of sunset drinks. A definite must for beach lovers!

White sands, turquoise water, soft waves and not many people! What more could you ask for! Relaxing and enjoyable- there is a small clump of trees to shelter under in the mid-day sun

Great spot for snorkelling and general relaxing. Make sure you take a picnic lunch and plenty of water and sunscreen. There is a pub only a couple of minutes walk though.

Clean sand, gentle waves and shallow depths make this a great beach to take the kids. The island's only bar and bistro is at the point, and canoe and paddle board rentals are available too.

We stayed on Putney Beach - with the Hideaway Restaurant at one end, and wild rocks and scrub at the other - very beautiful
