    1. Anonymous Littlehampton Beach
      Overall Rating:

      A nice town beach.
      The beach was clean and we liked the grass areas behind the beach. A liitle walk to the town centre but this is not as nice as some of the other towns in the area. We noticed the comments on this site about the west beach and took a walk over and we agree it is so different. Combined these two beaches provide a good town for families.
