Goring Gap Beach

Goring Gap beach by its very name is a beach that lies in the gap between Goring and Ferring and is part of a long stretch of West Sussex beach. The beach is pebble at high tide and then flat compact sand as the tide retreats with wooden groynes providing some great wind protection, and at the back of the beach, you have a large area of grass.

When the wind picks up Goring Gap is a popular beach with windsurfers and kitesurfers as the grass area makes it ideal to set up, although be aware of the groynes.

Goring Gap is also a popular beach for horse riding, although summer restrictions are in place to keep them off the beach during the main part of the day.

Parking is on the road or a small car park at the Ferring end of the beach and the beach has no facilities but it is only a short walk to either Ferring or Goring beaches that both have beach cafes and toilets.
