East Wittering Beach

East Wittering beach is a shingle shoreline at high tide but sandy at low tide! The best of both worlds really.

It is a quiet spot of coast but the sailors love it as the ocean here varies from flat to down the line wave riding if the wind is right. The beach is wide here so it feels emptier than it is.

Shelving gently, this south coast beach has extensive shallows for the kids to paddle in at low tide and the village of East Wittering is within walking distance with shops and other facilities. There is a good selection of accommodation here with campsites and bed and breakfasts to choose from.

Facilities include toilets, parking and a walk along the beach to nearby West Wittering.
