We stopped there last night, lovely setting and the foot ferry to Hayling Island also goes from here.

Fantastic place to stay. We`ve stayed & met some really interesting people. Last time we were there, there was a big funeral for a guy who`d lived on a houseboat there for `yonks`several of the folk attending stopped to talk to us.

Hope this is still a viable place as we are pinning our hopes on it for this coming Thursday 27th Oct. Google view looks good.

Thanks for posting :)

A lovely spot, and echo the above re Hayling Island. The beaches on Hayling Island were used to practice for D Day as the tides and currents there are virtually identical to the Normandy beaches.

Hi Guys,

I would like to say Hi to all you motorhome owners.
Please use common sense when parking on the beach where Dave (Taxi Driver) mentioned, as the local fishermen need access.

Thanks

Just to let you know, & by the way all thanks to DavePortsmouth, Portsmouth Council do mind motorhomes parking here, now a new sign posted just past ECA with a lot of things prohibited, MOTORHOMES, just being one of these.

Last year we heard there was 30 odd mobile homes here, all local fishermen, charter boat owners & many others could not park, even the fast food van could not get to her pitch because there were so many M/H's, needless to say the Police were called & in turn the council, & that's when the "brown stuff hit the fan". If you wish to put your awnings out go to a campsite!!!!!!



This is an illegal wild camping site!!!!!!!!!

It is probably not ilegal but am afraid more will go this way if people keep shouting about these special places !!!!!!!

This is no longer a viable place to park, as the new sign states "No Overnight Occupation of Cars, Vans, Motorhomes, Camper-vans", "Offenders will be prosecuted".

Wardens take photos during the day & then drive back of an evening.

I've been told of another stop-over at the D-day museum on Portsmouth Sea Front, not far from the Sea-Life Centre, which I'll probably try.
