Stokes Bay beach, Gosport, Hampshire
  • About Us

    Stokes Bay Beach Information

    Stokes Bay Beach has to be one of the longest shingle beaches I’ve ever seen, stretching 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 in either direction.

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

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

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