Pagham Beach (West Sussex)
Pagham is a quiet seaside resort with a south east facing shingle beach with a large shingle bar at the harbour entrance making this a good beach for windsurfing and sailing.
A WW2 Mulberry Harbour platform protrudes from the sea at low tide and of local historic interest are the old railway carriages still in use for some of the beach houses.
Pagham harbour is also a fantastic nature reserve with good access all around. Much of the area around the sea is a nature reserve and this now includes more than 700 acres of salt marsh and nearly 400 acres of farmland.
Shops, pubs, cafe, toilets and car parking (limited in Pagham but larger at the nature reserve) and Pagham sailing club on the beach front.
We have no current information on dog restrictions for Pagham Beach.

- Excellent: the highest classification meaning the water is cleanest
- Good: generally good water quality
- Sufficient: meets minimum standards
- Poor: You are advised not to swim. The beach will stay open and an action plan should be in place to improve the water quality.
