      Away from it all
      A good place to get away from the busy tourist traps. We just spent the time relaxing and building sand castles. Cafe was good.

      Overall Rating:

      So close to Littlehampton but also so far away
      This beach is such a contrast to Littlehampton’s main beaches. It can be walked to from Littlehampton but rather than being backed by promenade and park this has a large dune system.
      Excellent for relaxation or water sports away from the Littlehampton crowds. The only disappointment is that the dunes are pretty much all fenced off in order to protect them and the wildlife.
      Great walking down towards Climping and for the real energetic continue on to Middleton-on-Sea, we did this when the tide was low and could walk all the way on the beach.
