View of Chale Bay in the Isle of Wight by J. Hassell. Chale Bay is situated on the south eastern coast of the island and is well known for its beautiful coastline. Chale appears in the Domesday Book as Cela. There are dangerous rocks around Chale bay and many ships such as ‘The Clarendon’ in 1836, have been wrecked here with the loss of many lives. Because of its coastal location Chale has historically had a reputation for being the home of 18th century smugglers.
