Season: summer

The beach at Barton-on-Sea sits below cliff tops that afford breathtaking views of the coastal scenery and across the Solent to the Isle of Wight, as well as to Hurst Castle.   There is fine coast path walking.  The beach itself is largely shingle and rock.  Swimming is safe here and beach huts adorn the setting.  There are fossil beds that visitors travel miles to enjoy.  Due to the cliffs, paragliding is popular here and there is a golf course behind the eastern end of the beach.  The nearby town has restaurants and cafes, all that you’ll need as a visitor.
