St Leonards Beach (aka Marina beach)

St. Leonards beach, also known as Marina beach, runs westwards from the Hastings Pier. The beach is shingle and has large sandy areas as the tide goes out. The town of St. Leonards-on-Sea is often thought to be Hastings but although they are joined together, is a different town being full of Regency terraces and squares that back away from the seafront promenade.

Facilities include car parking, toilets, cafes, bars and restaurants a short walk away and seasonal lifeguards.
