  • Selsey West beach is on a long stretch of coast linking Selsey with Bracklesham, the beach is mainly pebbles and at high tide, all you get is a steep pebble bank, although as the tide goes out you get some hard compact sand.

    The main car park is by Marine Car park, Hillfield Rd, and here you also have a small beach kiosk. This section of beach is a little narrow and has wooden groynes that can give some welcome break from the wind that can hit Selsey Bill, the southern point of the Manhood Peninsula.

    As you head away from Selsey the beach gets wider and you have a large caravan park sitting behind and if you are energetic you can travel down to Bracklesham Bay.

    It is often worth considering the wind direction when looking at Selsey beaches, then heading to either the East or West beach as they can offer very different conditions on the same day.

    Selsey West Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year. Selsey West Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
