Hill Head Beach

The bathing water is a gently shelving beach which faces south-west, across the end of Southampton Water and the Solent and is sheltered from the wind by the Isle of Wight. 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.
