Tanners Lane is a less well known or used launch point situated about 2/3 of the way along the coast between Lepe and Lymington, and is about as rustic as they come. Driving down the very narrow lane brings you to a dead end directly on the sea front.

There is limited parking at the side of the road (be careful not to block the gate access to the house there) or alternatively it is possible to drive onto the shingle beach where there is space to park several cars. However, be very aware that vehicles of vehicles getting stuck or even partially submerged at higher tides!

At low tide, there is a bit of a carry to the water edge.


  • Free Parking – Limited
