It’s a favourite with locals for walking, paddleboarding and surfing and can be reached via a pathway zig-zagging down through the gardens of Highcliffe Castle, once home to Mr Selfridge and now the venue for varied concerts, exhibitions and fairs.
Further outstanding amenities include Highcliffe Castle Golf Club and Steamer Point Nature Reserve.
