Hayling Island West Beach, lying at the west end of the seafront, the waters here are sheltered by the West Winner sand bar ensuring that the waves are never too big in the summer and that, as the tide rises during the day, the water is usually warmer here than other parts of the seafront.
The West Winner sand bar extends for about a mile into the Solent and is uncovered during low tides. It is possible to walk around the sand bar at low tide but care should be taken to keep an eye on the tides when under taking this walk as it is very easy to be cut off from the mainland. Be prepared to have to wade some part of the way!
This is the only area of the main seafront that windsurfing is permitted and West beach is also a popular spot for surfers and body boarders.
At low tide in the evenings popular with horse riders along the sand flats.
Facilities include kiosk, pay and display car park and toilets.
We have no current information on dog restrictions for West Beach.
