The nearby beaches of Camber Sands in East Sussex, and Greatstone in Kent are where we run our kitesurfing lessons from.
- Elmer Sands and Middleton-on-sea beaches are an excellent location for kite buggies. The beach has excellent compact flat sand at mid to low tide. When the tide is low you have a long flat beach that basically stretches from Bognor Regis in the West to Littlehampton in the East. The more experienced kite handler can use the shingle banks to jump. Excellent beach for kite boarding and buggies as due to its private nature is never busy. The only problem it is difficult to get to and you will need to unload and then park the car.
- At Moors Valley Country Park there is something for all ages. The park is mostly covered by woodland and is ideal if you want to enjoy a peaceful walk or cycle ride through the Forest, experience a ride on the narrow-gauge steam train, play trails for youngsters or for the older adventurous go on a high wire adventure swinging through the tree tops. Go Ape Ringwood, giant obstacle courses up in the trees using ladders, walkways, bridges and tunnels made of wood, rope and super-strong wire, and top it all off with the country’s best zip lines
- Billinghay Open Air Swimming Pool is a volunteer-run outdoor, heated, secluded pool, at 25mx10m, with a maximum depth of 2m. The pool is available for hire as a venue for those wishing a private party; be it for a birthday, anniversary or any other special event.
- Climping and Littlehampton West Beach is an undeveloped, largely undiscovered section of West Sussex and one of the strategic rural gaps. Arun District Council has a guided walk of 4.5 miles perfect if you are in the area and want to get away from it all for a couple of hours. Alternatively, grab an OS explorer series 121 – Arundel and Pulborough map and just plan your own route or just park and explore. This is a pebble beach backed by sand dunes and is a Site of Nature Conservation (SNCI ) because of the important vegetated shingle habitat, a great place for wildlife: Oystercatchers, Mermaid’s Purse, Sea Kayle, Yellow Horned-Poppy, Ringed Plover, Common Lizards. The sand dunes area of the beach are a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and are part of the West Beach Local Nature Reserve. The Littlehampton end of the dunes has been fenced to protect some rare plants which are sensitive to trampling. There are areas of unfenced dunes closer to Climping. This stretch of the coast has two points of parking, Climping Beach and Littlehampton West Beach, but the guided walk starts at West Beach. In the summer although the beach is never busy the Climping car park is a lot bigger than the Littlehampton end although you can park in Littlehampton itself and cross the Arun river by bridge. You have a cafe and toilets at both ends, Littlehampton West beach cafe and the Climping cafe.
