At the end of South Beach road, park, descend the stairs on leash, turn left and within 200 metres the leash free zone begins and goes for approx. 7 or 8 kms.
Recently the dolphins have been swimming adjacent to your outward walk as you glare across the bay at Cowes on PI, in fact, the more you walk the closer the Island appears to get. Keep turning the corner and you will soon see French Island, sometimes the passing ships feel like they are going to land on the beach with you.
That's a big ship
Pause for a stick or ball throw, a photo of the natural surrounds, or plunge in for a deep water swim.
Whatever you do, don't tell the locals I told you!
