A stroll along the beach at Tanners Lane near Lymington is a delight. Tricky parking but not impossible.

Parked in Milton on Sea by the beach and walked along to Hurst Castle using the Solent Way Walk which took us about an hour and a half at a relaxed pace. We picked a sunny February day and the views were spectacular! Highly recommended...More

We walked along the shingle bank from Milford to Keyhaven and came back along the riverbank. It was windy and grey but very exhilarating. There were many families with children and dogs, a great atmosphere. We all slept very well that night.
