Hastings Beach (aka Pelham Beach)
The main family beach in Hastings is also known as Pelham beach and consists of pebbles but as the tide goes out you get plenty of sand to enjoy.
The beach sits between Hastings Pier and the East cliffs in front of Hastings old town. The beach is part of a long seafront and the beach stretching to the west of the pier is St. Leonards beach.
The beach facilities include car parking, toilets, showers, wheelchair access, pier, deck chair hire, sunbed hire, seasonal lifeguard cover and a range of cafes and restaurants.
Hastings is one of the medieval Cinque Ports on the south coast and today remains a fishing port with the UK’s largest beach-based fishing fleet.
Hastings Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
