    In this route, we take a break from the magical heath and woodland to experience the glorious golden coastline.

    This hike begins by exploring the colorful town of Lymington; a place rich in maritime history. Home to one of the first yacht marinas to be built in the UK, there are always lots of fabulous boats to see, as well as an outdoor swimming pool.

    Heading along the coastline, a short while later you find yourself at Eights Acre Pond. Until the end of 18th century, this area was the biggest hub of sea salt production in the country. These days, you will find it a tranquil stretch of water with great views inland and out to sea.

    As you continue along the shoreline, you soon arrive in Keyhaven. This adorable little village has a pretty harbor that boasts fabulous views of the Isle of Wight and Hurst Spit. The area is a good spot for bird watching, so keep a look-out.

    From there, you complete the circuit by heading over a delightful patchwork of fields before you arrive back in Lymington. This Georgian market town boasts narrow streets lined with pretty period cottages, as well as plenty of local cafes, restaurants and pubs; making it a great spot to explore, too.
