    Covehurst Bay Beach Information

    Covehurst Bay, also known as Fairlight Glen beach is mainly shingle with some large boulders and patches of sand at or near low tide.

    This area has a lot of erosion and access can be difficult and steep with some unstable sandstone and clay cliffs. The stability of the cliffs does make this a good beach for fossil hunting.

    Covehurst Bay is known as a naturist beach but is shared by non-naturist visitors.

    The beach has no facilities and parking is at the Hating Country Park Visitor Centre (pay and display) with then a walk, some 20 minutes,  down to the beach through the park. Alternatively, you can take the coast path from Hastings which is 3.2 km (2 miles) to the west of the cove.

    We have no current information on dog restrictions for Covehurst Bay Beach.

      Overall Rating:
      4

      A bit of a scramble down a makeshift path due to previous cliff falls and landslip. Worth it tho but stay away from landslip edges due to safety.
      We went at high tide so only pebbles and large rocks on beach but it’s so pretty and peaceful. It is a nudist beach and there was one nude swimmer but he was discrete and stayed at the other end of the beach.
      We go again as its rare to find a stunning beach that’s quiet.
