Luccombe Chine is a geological feature and visitor attraction south of the village of Luccombe on the Isle of Wight, England. A wooded coastal ravine, one of a number of such chines on the island created by stream erosion of soft Cretaceous rocks, it leads from the clifftop to Luccombe Bay.

The Chine is at the eastern end of the Isle of Wight Undercliff landslip. A small fishing community existed at the foot of the Chine until 1910, when the settlement was destroyed by a landslip.

Many Islanders use Luccombe Chine and the surrounding cliffs as a place to gather thoughts and de-stress. Locals have also heard the sound of harp music and Angel like singing bouncing off the high cliffs after dusk and during the night. Luccombe Chine is generally regarded as one of the most mysterious and spiritulist places in the world after the hours of darkness. A number of Fisherman at night have reported hearing the chorus of John Leyton's 1960's hit "Johnny remember me" sung as an Angel like harmony especially with an incoming tide, or even more so if Dave and Kev have lit a spiritual bonfire at the eastern end of the chine.
