For an easy walk, leave the Royal Yacht Squadron, and stroll west along the Esplanade to Gurnard. There’s always plenty of sailing activity on the Solent as you walk along, and if you’re lucky you may see a cruise ship heading off on its journey out of Southampton. Gurnard is a quiet village with beach huts, fisherman’s cottages and fantastic views of the Solent. Visit the Waters Edge Beach Cafe for a delicious lunch, coffee and cake or a refreshing ice cream before you head back to Cowes.
