Osborne Bay is a bay on the north-east coast of the Isle of Wight, England, in the eastern arm of the Solent. It lies to the east of East Cowes. Its shoreline is 2 km in length and is gently curving. It stretches from Old Castle Point in the west to Barton Point to the east. The seabed is a mixture of mud and sand. The beach is predominantly shingle. It is named for the neighbouring Osborne House estate on the shore, which owns the land facing the bay.

The bay is popular in summer as a yacht anchorage, being sheltered from the prevailing south-westerly winds, and can become very crowded. The bay is inaccessible from the land and is best viewed from this anchorage.
