Country Park Lepe, Exbury, Southampton SO45 1ADVisit Website
On Hampshire’s famous south coast and overlooking the waters of The Solent, Lepe Beach is one of the region’s most loved natural draws. As part of the wider Lepe Country Park, visitors can expect plenty of peace and tranquility along with spectacular views out towards the Isle of Wight on clearer days.
Alongside the golden sands and gentle surf to sink your feet into, a number of facilities are provided at the beach to enhance your day out.
You’ll find Lepe Beach where the New Forest National Park meets The Solent, on the shores 12 kilometres directly south of Southampton. If you’re travelling by car, you’ll need to use a network of A roads to reach the area. The most direct is the A326, which you can join by exiting at Junction 2 of the M27 and travelling south. It’s around 20 minutes’ drive from this junction to the beach. For those looking to public transport, the number 9 bus regularly runs between central Southampton and stops in Langley, a village that’s 25 minutes’ walk north of the beach. During the school Summer holiday period, the 9 bus extends its route and runs directly down to Lepe Beach.
Whilst you wait... just think about being in your swimmers, the sun's out and the smiles are big
