Saltdean beach is shingle between rock groynes backed by high chalk cliffs and at low tide, you have rock pools to explore. Located approximately 5 miles to the East of Brighton.
Due to the coastal erosion on this part of the coast you have a lot of concrete defences visible, so this is not a beach to get back to nature on. The concrete does provide some flat accessible under cliffs walks.
The beach has a few entrance places with parking or you have road parking, summer lifeguards, beach huts, cafe, toilets.
Saltdean Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
Saltdean beach has dogs restrictions in place between May 1st and September 30th.
