Seaview to Ryde Walk

Park your car anywhere on the Esplanade at Seaview and walk past the Boathouse pub with the sea on your right. You will pass rows of beach huts, woodland and into Puckpool Park. The sea views are stunning across the Solent to the mainland and the park itself is a gem. The path hugs the coast all the way around to Ryde, past Appley beach with its gothic tower and into the town. You'll find lots of places to eat and drink en-route, the path is even and flat so suitable for pushchairs. Dogs are allowed on the footpaths but restricted on the beach so do check the signs. The return walk is approx 2 miles depending how far into Ryde you walk and the best return route is back the way you came.

Lovely coast path

Great views, accessible with a pushchair and plenty of places to stop on route for refreshments and a great kids park in puckpool park (with public toilets), our toddler loved it. The Old Barracks beer garden is sunny and nice with reasonably priced drinks. Don't miss the sand playground on Ryde seafront if you have little kids, our toddler loved it!

Nice Walk

It is a nice walk along the coast from Seaview to Ryde. There are a couple of park cafes on the way and some nice coffee shops in Ryde.

Excellent pushchair friendly walk

A lovely walk from the doorstep, although you may need to walk via Bluett Road in Seaview at high tide! There are a couple of cafes in Puckpool to take a rest and refreshments.

Enjoyable walk

With the sea to look at and all the activity on it along the way it is a very enjoyable walk. When the tide is out you can shorten the walk by cutting across the beaches. If you walk along the paths you will pass a small nature reserve which can be visited by all, a couple of pubs, The Boathouse looked good, a cafe which we went in called The Dell and recreations. The area named Appley has a Coastal Foley and woods to walk through. The beach at Ryde is large and sandy, and Ryde has many places for refreshments after your walk. You can continue your walk along the pier, which is free for pedestrians. We estimated the distance to be a little over 2 miles, we took our time and enjoyed the views.
