Fabulous walk with lovely sea views. Easy to gain access to the Island, ring the bell and the gate was opened, MOD did not ask for any details.. Plenty of benches around the route to take a well earned rest and enjoy the views. Would highly recommend this walk.

Great walk, had a good days weather wise, which made it more enjoyable. Stop of for cake and tea at the scout hut was a highlight.

lovely views and a nice mix of the coast and countryside. there's a nice cafe there too!

Beautiful walk, stunning views, and only one instance of dog shit.

Very nice walk. Keep an eye on tide times.

Due to storm damage on part of the coastal path round Chidham point it is better to follow the alternative path. Hard going on the beach part which apparently is not passable at high tide and there is no alternative path

Such a peaceful walk. Saw a few other walkers but there was no road sound. Sunny weather, calm waters. No livestock. The old house at home did a great lunch in its beautiful garden, even had a biscuit for the dog. Easy route to follow despite lack of written instructions. Several points you can start from.

nice walk people need to clean up the dog shi? if they take them out for a walk

Thoroughly enjoyable walk. New to the walking scene and this was our longest one yet. The terrain was nice and flat and there are some really nice views and wildlife along the way. Loved it.

There is a section of about 1 mile where you cross the A27, (nightmare!! not for the feinted hearted!). You then have to walk through factories/ industrial estate which is horrible before final getting to the canal. Definitely a walk of 2 halves with the begin and end being lovely and the middle being horrible

Loved this walk. Check tide times!! Highly recommend Old House at Home in Chidham for an ale break!

Lovely flat walk with a wonderful Sunday lunch at the pub in Dell Quay. A birthday treat 😁 4 March 2018

East gate access is not working, impossible to access footpath on MOD site. 13.7.17 ADMIN RESPONSE: Sorry to hear you couldn't access the walk. We have spoken to the MOD and they have explained that the buzzer on the East Gate is temporarily broken, but there should be a sign explaining that walkers should phone the Gate Post instead, so that access can be given. The phone number should be on the local signage and is 01243 388269. We will add this note to the walk directions for other walkers.

This was indeed a beautiful walk lots to see, wildlife was great. But even as a dog owner I would DC cech the ignorant lazy dog owners who do not even try to clear up after a pet, you could at least put it in the hedgerow off the path. But lovely day.

Lovely walk, but wish dog owners would clear up after their dogs! Spent half the time for first couple of miles looking at where we were walking rather at beautiful scenery
