How to get here
The nearest railway station is in Havant.
The nearest bus stops are in the north of Hayling Island served by the number 30 and 31 buses.
The RSPB managed former Oysterbed lagoons on Hayling Island are located on the Hayling Billy Coastal Path, a 10 mile cycle path and walkway starting at Havant which hugs the eastern side of Langstone Harbour.
There are two small free public carparks on the North West Hayling Island shoreline which can be accessed directly from the A3023 Havant Road (postcode PO11 0LG). The old Oysterbed lagoons are just a short walk from both of these.
Sat nav POI file: If you have a satellite navigation system that can accept POI files, please see our POI page for a download link and instructions.
Small boats may use the landing area on Long Island (grid ref: SU704037) in daylight hours at high tide. Please note, access to the other offshore islands is prohibited due to the serious negative impact this would have on the breeding and roosting birds which use them.
