The Lymington to Keyhaven Walk is a fantastic adventure option if you’re craving coastal views, a level path, and other points of interest, such as Eight Acre Pond and Keyhaven and Pennington Marshes. You’ll know you’ve reached the end of the walk when you end up at Gun Inn, where refreshments await. This is a one-way walk, so you’ll have to organize transportation back to your car or walk the same 5.2mi back.

Lymington to Keyhaven Walk Description

The Lymington to Keyhaven Walk takes you on a stunning walk along the sea, granting phenomenal coastal views. Nothing beats revelling in the sweet-salty air of the sea! Setting out toward the Lymington Marina, you’ll follow the gentle, non-technical path along the ocean, passing by a few points of interest along the route. Shortly after the Marina, you’ll reach the Bath Road Recreation Centre, continuing past this, with the sea always in view. Admire the Normandy Lagoon as you make your way to the Eight Acre Pond. Next, you’ll pass by Keyhaven and Pennington Marshes Nature Reserve. Pause here to bask in the scenery before continuing along the coastal path toward The Gun Inn, where some refreshments await. From here, you’ll need to find transportation back as this is a one-way route, or you can take the same path back to your car after fuelling up.
