Totland Bay

A great beach for all the family and very quiet before the school term ended. When the tide is out there is plenty of sand, but once the tide comes in the beach is reduced considerably. There is still enough for access. The Waterfront restaurant serves excellent food and has wonderful views.

Totland Bay

Children absolutely loved Totland Bay both at high and low tides and sunset. Rocky corner provided lots of excitement when watching for baby crash and Little fish.
Dog owners do walk dogs on the Beach thought, it is not too often but it does happen there are no signs about dogs not being allowed too. Some People arrive atTotland bay by boat with dogs too.
Overall beautiful beach with a lot of sand at low tide. Not very crowded and loved by children. Walk to The far left sidę to the peaceful atmosphere near National Trust park side.

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.

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.
