Spanning around fifty miles, the coastline of West Sussex is full of hidden gems waiting to be discovered.

Take in the nostalgic charm of seaside towns like Worthing, Littlehampton and Bognor Regis. The beaches are perfect for lazy, sunny days and our resorts are laced with promenades and piers, amusements and attractions. For sandy beaches West Wittering is one not to miss, and for nature and space to breathe, take in the tranquil Chichester harbour.

For those who like nothing more than taking to the water, you’ll find a variety of locations just for you all along the coast. From sailing to paddle-boarding, kite-surfing to wind-surfing, harbour tours to sea diving, you won’t be disappointed.

If seafood excites your taste buds, there are waterfront bistros and harbour side pubs that will serve you the freshest local crab, lobster or mussels.
