Middleton-on-Sea Beach

Middleton-on-Sea beach is a great family beach that has a high water pebble area and then sands at mid to low tide when you can walk for miles in either direction to Bognor Regis or Littlehampton.

The beach has a high pebble bank with some grass area, but the pebbles can be steep to go down. You have good rock pools at low tide around the rock coastal defence that sits off the beach towards Elmer and these sea defence rocks also provide some natural protection from any on-shore wind.

It is very hard to park by Middleton-on-Sea beach as the area is backed by private gated estates with no vehicle access, although a few public footpaths lead from the main road to the beach with some parking (postcode PO22 7SR) in the village centre. On a positive, due to parking difficulties, you will always have plenty of space to spread out.

You have no facilities on the beach but close by in Middleton-on-Sea you have a couple of pubs, chippy, cafe and shops.
