New Forest Coast
The New Forest District has a coast some forty miles long. Around 90% of it has some form of nature conservation designation and it is host to many important habitats and species. It is also part of the wider Solent and one of the world's most famous locations for sailing. With traditional fishing and water based industries it is a fascinating mix of varied interests.
The Council's Coastal Management Plan provides a unique insight into all these features.
Events take place along the coast throughout the year. Find out what's happening on the New Forest Official Visitor website
