Whitecliff Bay Beach

Whitecliff Bay Beach is a sand and shingle beach at the foot of Culver Cliffs and adjoining the Whitecliff Bay Camping Grounds.

The beach is a Marine Conservation Society recommended beach and the footpaths that meander across the cliffs above give you terrific views out to sea.

The bay is lovely but with limited parking but it does have a cafe and a picnic area though.

Visitors who enjoy a walk can park on the top of Culver Down and take a stroll along a steep footpath to the beach. Having a holiday camp behind it makes the bay popular for families and no dogs are permitted at any time.

The beach itself is great for swimming and body boarding and is cleaned regularly.

Whitecliff Bay Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
