The town is a haven for yachting and hosts international sailing events annually. Sailing barges offer pleasure trips to visitors. Its sandy beach runs along Western Promenade next to Batemans Tower, a historic local landmark. A parade of beach huts line an attractive and enjoyable waterside walk where you can join the nature trail along the site of an old railway line to Alresford Creek. A range of sports and leisure activities are available along the promenade.
