A wonderful location to observe the solent water traffic. It is attractive because it has not been spoiled by unnecessary features. At its best at the end of a hot summers day, but also valued all year round.

Yes. Dogs are allowed and there is plenty of space. I think there are dog waste bins too. There is a road the whole way along so just keep an eye on cars.
