About Hayling Island

Hayling Island combines all the attractions of a traditional seaside holiday with excellent sporting and leisure facilities.

 Hayling Island is an island in the true sense of the word, being completely surrounded by natural watercourses. It is about 6.5 kilometres (4 miles) long and 6.5 kilometres wide. A single road bridge connects its northern end to the mainland of Southern England and a small passenger ferry connects it to the neighbouring island of Portsea where the city of Portsmouth is located. All this is set in a beautiful natural environment, preserved because of its exceptional flora and fauna and includes a wildlife haven which has become an important seabird breeding site.

The island's miles of unspoilt coastline and countryside also offer a haven of peace and tranquillity, where visitors can walk, cycle or relax.

Windsurfing was invented on Hayling Island and as well as events linked to this popular activity there is some of the best sailing on the South Coast.

Hayling Island is the only place in Britain to qualify for two European Blue Flag awards and its excellent beaches have also been awarded a Tidy Britain Seaside Award for their water quality, safety and cleanliness.

 
 
Situated between Portsmouth and Chichester harbour and linked to the mainland by both road bridge and ferry, Hayling Island has many hotels, B&Bs, campsites and self catering accommodation and also has holiday centres offering activity breaks for adults. The southern part of Hayling is the part of the island best known by holidaymakers, and is a combination of excellent beaches and countryside with the settlements of West Town, Gable Head and Eastoke spreading to meet each other but with fields, farms, woods and the sea all within easy reach.

Sailing and boardsailing are two activities for which the island is internationally renowned, conditions being perfect for both sports.
