The beach is predominantly shingle at high tide with large expanses of muddy sand and shells exposed at low water interspersed with wide lagoons. At the western end of the beach, the River Meon enters the sea at the Titchfield Haven Nature Reserve.

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.
