Alum Bay is close to the Needles, and it is there that Emily hears the body of a baby has been found. Alum Bay is a bay near the westernmost point of the Isle of Wight, within close sight of the Needles rock formation. Of geological interest and a tourist attraction, the bay is noted for its multi-coloured sand cliffs.
