5 Reasons Why You Should Visit Hayling Island

By Brian Walters

1. Explore the Billy Trail!

The Hayling coastal path runs most of the length of Hayling along the original route of the "Hayling Billy" train line.

The 4 mile long path hugs the western sea-coast of the island, offering a peaceful alternative route between West Town at the southerly end and Langstone Bridge at the northernmost end. The course itself has two tracks, offering different surfaces for horse riders on one side and pedestrians and cyclists on the other.

2. Bargain hunt at the car boot sale

Every Wednesday, on the beach, there is a super boot sale. If the weather is good, you will often find more cars - but there's always someone there willing to tempt you with their wares.

3. Grab a round of golf

Hayling has two "pay and play" golf courses: One on the seafront and one at the edge of Tournerbury woods. Both offer a challenging game mixed with great scenery.

4. Learn to Kitesurf

Kitesurfing is the latest dramatic water sport to hit the beaches of Hayling Island and is increasing in popularity year on year. The shallow sandy bay of West Beachlands makes for an ideal place to learn this exciting sport and lessons are available throughout the summer months from Zero Gravity on Hayling.

5. Stroll with the wildlife

Hayling Island enjoys a protected climate. The Downs to the North and the Solent to the South, affords Hayling with a useful shelter, which gives it its unique microclimate. So, it boasts a variegated fauna and flora which you can view
