Stokes Bay, often referred to as ‘The Jewel in Gosport’s Crown’, is enjoyed by local people and visitors alike. With its promenade, cafes, splash park and miniature golf course, it is a popular place for swimming, sailing, windsurfing and kite flying. 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 wih No 2 Battery housing a Diving Museum.

We hope that you enjoy browsing the site and learn more about Stokes Bay, it attractions, its history and its events.
