Stokes Bay, often referred to as ‘The Jewel in Gosport’s Crown’, is enjoyed by local people and visitors alike. With its mile long promenade, cafes, play/splash park and miniature golf course, it is a popular place for walking and running, swimming and water sports, kite flying and even playing petanque; or just sit on one of the many benches and watch the world go by.

The unspoilt natural area to the east towards Fort Gilkicker is a delight for walkers with an abundance of wild flowers and many varieties of birds.  The shingle shore supports a variety of flowers.

Steeped in history, it owes its unspoilt character to its past as an area of military defence. In the 19th century a line of defensive forts, batteries and a moat were constructed.  Two of the batteries remain today with No 2 Battery housing a Diving Museum.
