Stokes Bay

Down on the eastern end of the solent is Stokes Bay, a shallow indent between Browndown and Gilkicker, home to the the Stokes Bay sailing Club and a couple of cafes. The broad paved walkway follows the shoreline, there's ample (if expensive) parking right at the waters edge so the bay is popular with windsurfers who launch off the shingle, cyclist, strollers or people who just like to park up and watch the ships coming and going.

There are views past Portsmouth of the main shipping channel like this incoming ship on its way from the Nab Tower.

And outbound ships passing down the Solent with the Isle of Wight in the distance.
