Well made up paths link a variety of attractive and clean beaches. Several car parks can be found along the route and are in the typical price range for coastal parking.

One of the best walks ever. You can get on it any where from bournemouth to Lymington. Lots of great restaurants and lots of great bars , but above all that view, it's to die for. It's flat mainly but with a bit of up...More

Hello UA 1980 Lymington the Angel (and blue pig) in the High Street is very good busy as its in town but it has plenty of comfy seats. The Gun Inn in Keyhaven is very nice with tables outside and about the only pub on the walk. Its a good pub though its also very close to Milford Enjoy the walk Bob
