What's it like to live in Beachlands?

I am looking at a flat in Beachlands, an area on the seafront in Hayling Island. Can anyone tell me what this area is like to live in? I am particularly interested in how the funfair being there affects the area in regards to noise levels, traffic and anti-social behaviour, and also how busy the Beachlands area gets in summer. All information on this area would be very welcome. Thanks

  • The beachlands is a lovely part of the island. Yes, the funfair can be busy in the summer months, but it is hardly noisy, and a surprisingly uncool place for any 'riff-raff' to hang out. This locations massive selling feature is the beach, and the views across to the isle of weigh. As for traffic? It tends to be quiet all year except summer weekends where the steady flow of cars headed for the beach. The evenings are always quiet and the roads around there are usually empty beyond 9pm. The nearest pub, The Royal Shades pub, is being refurnished (hopefully in a similar style to the successful inn on the beach), after being shut for 8 years. Even when it was open though, there was very little in the way of anti-social behaviour. During the winter the beach has alot less custom, dog walkers and passionate wind/kite surfers are the only ones.

  • I would suggest that you look at the local authorities’ website or to see what the crime statistics etc for this area are . You can also look at the local tourist board website for that area which gives you an up to date overview of the area. I would also visit the area and ask some locals.
