West Sussex Seaside

Good Old Sussex by the Sea.

West Sussex has some of the most beautiful beaches on the south coast of England. In the west of the county there is a huge sandy beach stretching for miles from East Head to Selsey. Further east, the beaches of Sussex (almost uninterrupted) run from Bognor Beach to Brighton. Only the mouth of the Arun and the port of Shoreham interrupt the coastline.

From pebble beaches to long golden sandy beaches, Sussex has many seaside resorts and hidden gems to choose from.
Worthing, with more than 5 miles of beaches, has a historic pier and palm-lined promenade. Smaller beaches at Lancing, Southwick and Kingston offer a quiet place to relax.

In Littlehampton there is the longest bench in the UK on the promenade. The resort also boasts busy Harbour Park and a range of water sports. Walk across Ferry Bridge to West Beach with sand dunes, rare plants and wildlife. The beach is sand and gravel like almost all Sussex beaches and is good for a walk, with stunning views of the gentle curve of the Sussex coast. Worth a visit is the East Beach Cafe, a strangely shaped building by the sea. East Beach is more popular with Littlehampton holidaymakers, while West Beach is quiet and a local nature reserve.
