Middleton-on-Sea Beach (West Sussex)

  • Information

    Middleton-on-Sea beach is a great family beach that has a high water pebble area and then sand at mid to low tide, when you can walk for miles in either direction to Bognor Regis or Littlehampton.

    The beach has a high pebble bank with some grass area, but the pebbles can be steep to go down. You have good rock pools at low tide around the rock coastal defence that sit off the beach towards Elmer and these sea defence rocks also provide some natural protection from any on-shore wind.

    It is very hard to park by Middleton-on-Sea beach as the area is backed by private estates with no vehicle access, although a few public footpaths lead from the main road to the beach with some parking in the village center. On a positive, due to parking difficulties, you will always have plenty of space to spread out.

    You have no facilities on the beach but close by in Middleton-on-Sea you have a couple of pubs, chippy, cafe and shops.

    Middleton-on-Sea Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year. Middleton-on-Sea Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.

      OK but better beaches next door.
      Nice beach but not sure why you would visit when you have Climping beach next door. We also had a lot of seaweed which made swimming a bit of a poor experience.
      I think leave this to the locals.
