Overview

"With over a mile of beach, pine fringed cliffs, historic D-Day remains and wild flower meadows, Lepe Country Park is a great day out with superb views of the Solent and Isle of Wight. There's a full list of events throughout the year that explores all areas of the park from "Pond dipping" and "Marine Wonders" to Cafe quiz nights and the annual "Lepe into Action" - there's lots to entertain the whole family. Please check out our website for more information about what's on and all you can see and do on your visit to Lepe.

Nice little (it quite small in size compared to other country parks) place to see the sea. Great views of the Island and boats around. Small stony beach. Kids love collecting shells here. Gets busy in peak season.More
