Beaches and coastal

Breathe in the fresh air, feel the sand (or pebbles) between your toes and explore the fantastic coastline that West Sussex has to offer. With 50 miles of stunning coastal landscape, there’s nowhere better for a day at the beach. Nestled with seaside towns, rural villages and historic cities, there are activities for all ages and tastes. Make family memories, eat ice cream, swim in the sea, go rock-pooling, sun bathe, try kite surfing or stand up paddle boarding (SUP). The list is endless but the stresses of home will be a distant memory.

Beautiful landscapes

West Sussex has beaches of all shapes and sizes. Enjoy a day of water sports and sandcastle building at West Witterings or stroll along the promenade at Littlehampton’s award-winning East Beach – the home of Britain’s longest bench!

Try the natural haven of Climping for a remote, wild and unspoilt landscape. Our favourite hidden gem is the charming seaside village of Bosham. This historic fishing village is listed in the Doomsday Book.
