  • Cuckmere Haven (also known as the Cuckmere Estuary) is a shingle beach with rock pools where the river Cuckmere meets the English Channel between Eastbourne and Seaford.  The valley leading to the beach is a flower-rich chalk grassland with views of the Cuckmere River as it meanders towards Cuckmere Haven beach and the white chalk cliffs of the Seven Sisters. The beach sits within the Seven Sisters Country Park.

    At low tide ironwork from the wreck of the Polynesia, a German sailing ship that ran aground in April 1890 west of Beachy Head.

    The beach has had a history of smuggling and more recently during the Second World War was identified as a possible German landing site so you can still see the pillboxes, anti-tank obstacles/traps and ditches that were installed as a defense system.
