Beaches

Just some ideas
Catch the Wick ferry for £2 across the river and walk and easy walk along the river and nature reserve to get here. Takes 15 minutes. You can then either stay on the beach, sand and pebbles , walk along the tarmac road or catch the land train to mudeford spit, or walk along the beach to mudeford spit. The further you walk the less it is like the UK. Just fab
