Milford on Sea Beach

Milford on Sea Beach is a dog friendly beach worth visiting. The beach is a long shingle beach with character colourful beach huts lining the promenade and it is backed by low cliffs. The beach adjoins a nature reserve.

There is an excellent walk from this beach along Hurst Spit to the castle and you can enjoy a snack or lunch at the Needle Eye Cafe and offer the kids an ice-cream at the kiosk there. The other eatery is the art deco Blue Horizon Restaurant on the east side of the beach which has great views of the Needles from the top floor. Shops are about 500 yards away and parking is really good.

The Needles of the Isle of Wight are clearly visible from this beach on most days.

Milford on Sea Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
