There is a holiday park in Bay View and a pub, the Bay View. There is also a garage which sells caravans and miscellaneous supplies. Formerly there were two general stores, but one closed in the 1980s due to a lack of trade. The same fate led to the closure of the Bay View Stores in 2004.
51% of the population travels more than 10 km to work, with 72% of workers travelling by car.
The B2231 road runs along the southern edge of Bay View and provides the only transport link. Buses run every half-hour or hour to the rest of the Isle and services to the mainland are also available.
Bay View has no education facilities, with the nearest school being two miles away in Eastchurch.
