to LANGSTONE Harbour
A warm reception awaits those who would find their way to this relatively little known and untouched harbour. Langstone is the centre of a three harbour estuary complex, situated between Portsea Island and Hayling Island on the South-Eastern coast of Hampshire.
The harbour is a site of Special Scientific Interest, a Ramsar Site (Wetlands of International Importance), a Special Protection Area and a designate Special Area of Conservation.
The harbour is rich with flora and fauna, and a bird watcher's paradise. Not only is the area rich in wildlife but in ancient history also with historical artefacts being found on the harbour islands, mudflats and foreshore.
The harbour is a haven for pleasure boats; it caters for all kinds of watersports - sailing, windsurfing, water skiing, jet skiing and charter fishing. Portsea Island and the City of Portsmouth, home to Britain's Naval Heritage, has a lot to offer any visitors. A good variety of shopping, entertainment and museums are available.
Hayling Island offers the more tranquil side of life with pleasant beaches, country walks and shopping in West Town and Mengham. There are many hostelries throughout this area serving a wide variety of cuisine.
