Selsey East Beach

The East Beach at Selsey in West Sussex is a pebble beach on either side of the RNLI lifeboat station.

Selsey is situated on a peninsula jutting out into the English Channel about eight miles south of Chichester. A small town that retains its history, the unique Selsey community spirit and the Selsey fishing fleet. Fresh fish and crabs are for sale caught by the local fishing boats pulled up on the beach.

There are many things to do including walks along the seawall, cycle routes, Selsey lifeboat station and museum, windsurfing and a diving and snorkelling centre.

Facilities at the beach include free parking on the road, pub, toilets, RNLI shop and children’s play area whilst Selsey is a moderate walk away and has a wider range of restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs.

Selsey East Beach has dog restrictions.
Dogs are allowed on Selsey East beach all year round but they are prohibited from designated areas (between groynes E26 & E33) between 1st May and 30th Sept. Must be kept on a lead on the sea wall.
