  • Stokes Bay Beach has to be one of the longest shingle beaches I’ve ever seen.

    It stretches from Lee on the Solent to the Stokes Bay Harbour Entrance. There is a large car park and when you step out of the car all you see is sky and beach for miles on either side.

    There are great facilities here and the beach is popular for swimming, sailing, fishing, canoeing, paddling and other watersports. Next to the beach is Stanley Park which is home to wildlife and bird life and a lovely place to walk through.

    If you are thinking of eating out try Pebbles Fish and Wine Bar in the bay which has stunning views across the water to the Isle of Wight and a great wine cellar and menu!

    Facilities include car park, cafe and restaurants, toilets (incl. disabled), BBQ areas, slipways and a variety of shops. Entertainment options also includes <a ‘Pirates Cove’ child play facility, paddling pool, putting green, tennis courts and golf club.

    Stokes Bay Beach has dog restrictions. Dogs are restricted in some beach areas between May and October.
