Nice and tidy
Jul. 2021 • Couples
A most pleasant walk along the esplanade and generally the area was well kept and the gardens a real treat. The sea front has a mixture of textures and generally safe. A pleasant area for bathing and picnics with seating and grass tk hand. We stayed nearby at the few retained guest houses as they disappear for apartments and parking is good but at a price. Recommended for long and short stays as all things are catered for.

Great for watching the hovercraft
Jun. 2021 • Couples
Stony beach. Near to hovercraft and great to watch the ferries and cruise ships going in and out of Portsmouth
There are shops and food places nearby
And easy to get ice creams

Worst Breakfast on the South Coast
Jul. 2021 • Business
I had been looking forward to going to the beach cafe. Got a parking space right outside. Very welcoming staff great view not the cleanest restaurant I have been in.
Fortunately I just ordered tea and a basket of toast absolutely fine. Up came my friends full english breakfast, burnt sausages and bacon, without the worst breakfast I have ever seen. The call from the kitchen breakfast menu finished!!! When the wound send out a total disaster of a meal beyond me. My friend was unable to eat it but too embarrassed to complain.

Lovely location
Jun. 2021
We were lucky and the area wasn't too busy. Beautiful scenery. Great promenade from Portsmouth to Southsea with many food outlets, arcades, crazy golf etc to be had alongside the beach.

Beautiful beach lovely views nice and flat easy to walk
Sep. 2020
Usually we like wild and windswept beaches far from anywhere like Shetland Skye or Orkney but we do really love this beach.
We usually come off the very early ferry at 6am drive here and park on the front by the beach. We just sit and watch the whole place come alive.
First the very early morning joggers, lots of nurses and doctors with their nhs name badges bouncing along, then the dog walkers, then the fun joggers, families with children arriving and the whole place is alive with happy faces.
I get out and gently walk (post heart attack) along the path at the side of the beach, it is so easy going and flat.
I do walk down at the nearest point to the sea, just a few feet, and just stand and take in the view.
All the different ferries going in and out, accross to the old forts and to the Isle of Wight.
We had brilliant sun with a fresh breeze. This really is a lovely place.

The Promenade makes Excellent Walking
Dec. 2020
We decided to walk from Southsea Pier into "Old Portsmouth" and back, which is a very healthy walk with lots of interesting sites to see a long the way. It was a crisp December day with everybody socially distancing, as well as the sites the people watching was excellent.
