  • We parked here (on advice) and used it as a base for walking along the solent and into the local countryside towards Exbury. A lovely walk on a chilly February day. The park has toilets and a cafe, a ...  more »

  • Lovely place to visit for a whole day or just an afternoon or morning. Lovely area to play football or fly kites. The play area has been renovated and is fantastic for kids of all ages. The beach can be great fun at the right time of day, best at low tide to search through all the rock pools. Just waiting for the modernisation to finish completely for the fifth star as this place is great.
  • Easy parking, I think it was £2.20 ish for 2 hrs. Nice walk along the foreshore towards Calshot with interesting information about the big role played during the war. Good coffee and food at the cafe. A new facility is being built at the moment.
  • Pretty beach walk with good cafe and parking. Dog friendly all year round
  • Lovely walk along the beach. Able to get a drink and bite to eat.
  • Lovely area on the south coast between Southampton & Bournemouth overlooking the Isle of Wight. Large grass areas with a narrow, mostly pebbly beach. There's a play area for children, walking routes, a cafe and a couple of areas with BBQs you can hire. Wonderful views over the Solent. At the time of writing they're doing a lot of development bringing a new visitor centre, play areas, etc, to be completed Spring 2018. This doesn't however affect the general area and use currently. Well worth a visit.
