Hayling Island - West Hayling Beach

The bathing water is situated on the south coast of Hayling Island facing across the Solent. The bathing water is primarily a shingle beach around high tide but with long stretches of gently shelving sand exposed at low water. To the west, the bathing water is sheltered by the West Winner sand bank which stretches for about a mile into the bay at the mouth of Langstone Harbour. The bank is uncovered during low tides. Behind the beach is a grassed area and golf course.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
