Once you reach Christchurch you need to follow the by-pass (A35) towards Lymington. At its end, large roundabout, go streight over into Highcliff Road. Follow it to the roundabout, turn right into The Runway. Third on left into Bure Lane (signposted the coastguard station), fourth on left into Seaway Avenue. Continue to the sea. The camping area is through the gates on right hand side.
