we sat on the top of the cliff overlooking the beach. The view across the Solent is lovely - helped by great weather! A steep walk down to the beach, no good for wheelchairs.

Seems very popular for so early in the year, very many dogs & cyclists, but for all that a great walk along the beach & back over the cliffs with amazing views of Christchurch across the water. Very clean, places to eat & drink

Go every year with my son. Lovely beach, quiet high street but a great base for the new forest. Miles and miles of beaches and great dog walks
