Totland Bay is a bay on the west coast of the Isle of Wight, England. It lies to the west of the village of Totland from which it takes its name. It faces north west and its shoreline is 4km in length and is made up of a straight west facing coast which has a beach, concrete seawall, groynes and pier and a straight north facing rocky coastline. It stretches from Warden Point in the north to Hatherwood Point in the south west.

The seabed is a mixture of mud and sand. The beach is predominantly shingle. Since 2001 the quality of the beach has been high enough for it to be awarded the Seaside Award Flag. In the summer, litter and seaweed are removed each day, with the latter being composted by local farmers.[1] Currently, the pier is being refurbished to re-open the cafe which was there before.

The bay is best viewed from Headon Warren or anywhere along the concrete seawall. The Isle of Wight Coastal Path runs along the seawall from Warden Point to Widdick Chine.
