Recreation and Tourism
The natural landscape of the Manhood offers many possibilities for recreation and tourism. With its relatively undeveloped coastline and semi-rural hinterland it is a popular recreational destination within easy reach of several major conurbations including London.
There is natural contrast to the more urbanised seaside resorts on the south coast, such as Brighton and Bognor Regis, giving it a unique status. This is being recognised by both visitors and tourist businesses who are choosing the area to visit and invest in because of its environmental qualities and potential for outdoor recreation including watersports, cycling, walking and horse riding.
