It’s not surprising that windsurfing was invented on Hayling Island in Hampshire. The island is bordered by both Chichester and Langstone harbours and also has three miles of beaches along its seafront on the Solent.
Situated south of Havant in Hampshire between Portsmouth and Emsworth, Hayling Island has always appealed to holiday makers and families and retains all the attractions of a traditional seaside resort.
Hayling Island’s three main beaches have won both the European Blue Flag and the Keep Britain Tidy Group Seaside Award Flag and are greatly enjoyed by the bucket and spade brigade as well as walkers and nature lovers.
Children and young people love the roller coaster rides at the Funland amusement park while the East Hayling Light Railway offers a ten-minute train ride along the seafront.
Staunton Country Park is a gem just outside of Havant, with amazing gardens, a tropical glass house and an Amazonian water lily. Fun for all the family can be found on the ornamental farm with the friendly farmyard animals.
The pretty market town of Emsworth is nestled on Hampshire's border within 10 muntues drive of Hayling Island, Emsworth is a delightful town with narrow streets, a harbourside, charming pubs, restaurants and specialist shops, whilst visiting Hayling Island ensure to pop in to Emsworth.
