The Solent Way begins in Milford-on-Sea just to the south of the New Forest, with stunning views of the Needles on the Isle of Wight in the distance. The path initially takes you on the sea front before heading down Hurst Beach on this impressive spit to Hurst Castle. Returning from the spit, the path follows the coast through pleasant countryside round to the lovely port of Lymington.

This is one trail in the Solent Way collection of trails. Together they describe the full length of this long distance footpath.
