West Wittering Beach

38 min drive from Lakeside and Sinah Warren, PO20 8AJ

Situated at the entrance to Chichester Harbour, this large beach holds the Blue Flag award for cleanliness and safety and is ideal for a traditional day on the sand. In winter months the walks around the sand dunes of East Head are a welcome escape back to nature.

Southsea Seafront

27 min drive from Lakeside and 30 min drive from Sinah Warren, PO5 3PB

Less than a mile from Portsmouth city centre, this mainly shingle beach is home to Southsea Pier, winner of ‘Pier of the Year’ 2018. Restored to its former glory, this iconic structure has been featured in an eclectic mix of media, from The Who’s ‘Tommy’ to Mr. Bean.

Millennium Promenade Portsmouth

26 min drive from Lakeside and 28 min drive from Sinah Warren, PO5 3AA

A celebration of Portsmouth’s rich history, three kilometres of promenade link all the points of interest on the waterfront. Built at the turn of the millennium, the route is indicated by a chain motif set into the surface to symbolise the historic chain that was tightened across the harbour entrance.


18 min drive from Lakeside and 22 min drive from Sinah Warren, PO10 8BP

The coastal village of Emsworth features narrow streets lined with Georgian houses, walled gardens, a mill pond, and spectacular views across the water of Chichester Harbour. The antique dealers and independent food shops give it a delightful old-world charm.


27 min drive from Lakeside and 29 min drive from Sinah Warren, PO19 1HS

The cathedral city of Chichester dates back to Roman times and boasts nearby beaches, shopping, and historic tours. We recommend West Dean Gardens, a restored garden with working Victorian glasshouses, a 300-foot pergola, a spring garden and occasional fibreglass ‘surreal’ trees.

Mulberry Harbour

10 min drive from Lakeside and walking distance from Sinah Warren

A piece of WWII history that can be seen from the Sinah shoreline, Mulberry Harbours were developed by the United Kingdom to land troops and supplies en masse without the need for a port. In Langstone Harbour are the remains of a Phoenix Caisson (type C).

Hayling Billy Trail

8 min drive from Lakeside and 5 min drive from Sinah Warren, PO11 0EH

An easy five-mile return walk that follows the old Hayling Billy railway line past Langstone Harbour, home to a wealth of seabirds and waders. Crucially, there are pubs at both ends of this scenic walkway, the Ship Inn at Emsworth and several on Station Road nearer Langstone.

Hayling Beach

8 min drive from Lakeside and 4 min drive from Sinah Warren, PO11 0AS

3 miles of sandy and shingle beach facing out into the Solent that has won both the European Blue Flag and the Keep Britain Tidy award, Hayling Beach benefits from sea breezes which keep the temperature just about perfect most of the year round.

Hayling Oyster Beds & Langstone Harbour

10 min drive from Lakeside and 12 min drive from Sinah Warren, PO11 0LG

Oysters were farmed on Hayling from 1819 up until the 1970s, and in 1996 they were restored to create a haven for wildlife. Langstone is home to around 25 harbour seals, and on rare occasions, bottlenose dolphins and otters have been seen in its waters.

Farlington Marshes

16 min drive from Lakeside and 19 min drive from Sinah Warren, PO6 1SR

Unusually for a seaside area, Farlington Marshes is better in winter than in summer. A huge number of migratory wildfowl descend on the area. The easy 4km circular walk around the marshes is mostly on the sea wall. Keep an eye out for short-eared owls and peregrine falcons.

Hayling Ferry to Portsmouth

11 min drive from Lakeside and walking distance from Sinah Warren, PO9 2RL

It’s an easy drive to Portsmouth from Hayling Island, but for a taste of sea life nothing beats the ‘Pride of Hayling’ foot ferry. It only takes 3 minutes and the feel of the ocean breeze on your face is a delight.

Queen Elizabeth Country Park

27 min drive from Lakeside and 29 min drive from Sinah Warren, PO8 0QE

Bigger than the island of Gibraltar, the local council has invested over £2m in improving this pristine parkland over the last two years. The many walks and cycleways are slightly hilly but lovely in good weather, and the new visitors centre restaurant is ideal for a cuppa afterwards.

Staunton Country Park

17 min drive from Lakeside and 20 min drive from Sinah Warren, PO9 5HB

A listed landscaped parkland and forest that also includes an ornamental farm, ornamental lake, follies, maze, glasshouses and walled garden. The shell house is a particular highlight, built in 1828 and covered in shells from Hayling Island. The park also has 3 walking trails for various abilities.


Forest of Bere

37 min drive from Lakeside and Sinah Warren, PO17 6JB

Home to a mixture of woodland, heathland, farmland and open space, the Forest of Bere has walking and cycling routes for a range of abilities. Although the paths are usually fine we recommend taking your wellies, just in case.
