Highcliffe Beach in Lymington is Dorset’s most easterly beach. It is mixed sand and shingle, and is reached via steeply sloping gravel paths, making it unsuitable for disabled access.
The beach is backed by cliffs, which are topped by car parking (known locally as the Crow’s Nest) and facilities for visitors. Activities include safe, clean bathing (between groynes H0 and H8) and water sports (between groynes H8 and H11). There are plenty of paths and promenades to explore in and around the area. From the beach, there is a view across to the Isle of Wight.
