This part of the Solent Way is very rural in nature, starting from the town of Warsash on the banks of the river Hamble. From Warsash the path is soon quiet, passing a spit of land, popular with fisherman, then round the coast, with marshland inland and sea to your right, passing a caravan site. Beyond the caravan site the coast has cliffs, unusual for this part of the country, with the path following the cliff top round to Hillhead with it's small beach and harbour, then on into the larger town of Lee-on-the-Solent.

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