Nice place to take a walk. Beautiful beach, sea view as well as isle of Wight across the strait. Lots of people doing water sports.

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.

Great place to swim and sit afterwards, with wonderful views of the Island and passing ships. Useful that there are now toilets.

We drove for an hour to see the sea after a busy week. My husband had seen a tiny cafe when last kayaking in the area and so we decided to call in for a drink and snack. Most unwelcoming, we asked if they did...More

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.
