Littlehampton West Beach is on the opposite side of the River Arun from Littlehampton town centre. The beach is much quieter in the summer than the main Littlehampton coastguards beach as it has limited facilities. To access this beach you can either walk across the bridge from the main Littlehampton family beach or use the small local car park.
Littlehampton West beach is part of the Local Nature Reserve (LNR) and the Climping Beach Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), which has national protection. It includes the sand flats, shingle, sand dunes and all animals that feed on them, just one of only 3 sand dune systems in West Sussex.
Whilst visiting Littlehampton the West beach is well worth a visit along with Climping beach as they do offer a great contrast to the typical pebble West Sussex beach and offer some sand, although today much of the dunes are protected and fenced off.
Facilities at the beach include pay and display car park, toilets and cafe, although more facilities also a short walk across the bridge to the East Beach and Littlehampton town centre.
