South Lancing Beach (West Sussex)
South Lancing Beach is located next to Lancing Beach Green a large public grass area with direct access to the beach. The beach has the usual West Sussex wooden groynes and is pebbles with compact sand at mid to low tide.
Lancing is part of a long stretch of West Sussex coast that runs eastwards from Worthing’s Pier and Splash Point, through Lancing and down to Shoreham harbour. The beach has a path that runs behind it giving plenty of access options away from the main car park areas.
If you take that little effort and move away from the busier areas you will also see working parts of the beach with small fishing boats pulled up
The beach has a swimming zone that keeps water sports users away from bathers and as the beach is popular with kitesurfers there are two zoned areas, the first is a free rider zone and the second is a kitesurfing teacher zone.
The surf is best in the winter months with a good beach break.
Facilities at the beach include parking (fees March to September inclusive), toilets, food, beach huts, children’s play area.
We have no current information on dog restrictions for South Lancing Beach.
