A great place from which to explore the busy Hamble river, downstream through the marinas to Hamble-le-rice, or upstream into quieter waters and the river Hamble Country Park. There is limited waterside parking, but this entry point can get very busy in good weather. There is now an overflow car park a short walk away. Paddle board and kayak hire and tuition available.
