Set within Christchurch Bay, Milford on Sea's beaches offer sea and shore a stone's throw from lots of amenities, shops and eateries.

Or pop on the car ferry to the Isle of Wight.

Off The Rails (4 miles)

The original station was transformed into a restaurant in 2014 and is now open for lunch and dinner throughout the year. This is a popular spot for walkers and cyclists and dogs are made very welcome. Give them a call for opening times before you go as they don't open every day during off season months.

October 2017

Fantastic meal and a nice location for a bit of birdwatching

We had some great burgers and a delicious roast duck leg with a savoury waffle (loved the sauce too!) What a great location! Shame it was too cold for us to explore the wetlands and foreshore, however still managed to spot a few interesting birds on the way back to the town centre. Dogs are welcome too, which is a bonus, and they can even sample some "doggy treats"

Lymington Sea Water Baths (300 yards)

A 110 metre salt water pool offering swimming lanes, zorbing, kayaks and stand up paddle boards. Open from May to September (the cafe opens longer) this place is great fun for all the family. Word of note; the pool floor is rocky so reviews mention to wear wetsuit boots or beach shoes.

Freshwater Bay beach (6 miles)

A pretty bay with a sand and pebble beach nestled in between chalk cliffs. Located just to the east of Needles headland, the beach is popular but usually has ample space and facilities. Parking is available and dogs are not allowed from May until the end of September. There's no lifeguard cover here.

October 2019


We sat on the wall next to the short promenade, the air is so fresh, the sun was warm and the sea was noisy around this lovely bay crashing over nearby rocks and rushing up the beach. It was only 30 minutes but wonderful in October.

Mr Treasure April 2017

If you visit at high tide, there's a good spot along the sea wall to jump off and go for a swim. At low tide the 'cabbage patch' of rocks appear, a great spot for rock pooling and exploring, but shoes are advised!

The Haven Bar and Restaurant (¼ mile)

With views over the marina towards the Solent, this is a great spot to visit for either a meal or just sit and watch the world go by with a drink.

White Maiden Sea Fishing (¼ mile)

Designed for comfort and economy providing a great day out at a very good price, drift for a few hours and anchor up somewhere in a 15 mile radius of the famous Needles Lighthouse. Primarily boat fishing, this is ideal for Solent Sight Seeing, watching the racing during Cowes week and Bird Watching too for 10 passengers and 2 crew.
