Worthing Beach

Worthing beach is in West Sussex and is low-key compared to its East Sussex neighbour Brighton. Like all beaches on the West Sussex coast, it is a pebbly shingle beach but when the tide is out you will get lots of firm sand and many shallow pools. A great beach for family games, exploring and paddling.

The Lido on the beachfront no longer offers a swim but has funfair rides, cafes, beach shops and an ice cream kiosk. Spend your time walking along the beach or promenade people watching and exploring the grassy areas just behind the beach or the town shops. At the western end towards Goring, you have a children’s playground on the beach itself.

Facilities at Worthing beach include car parks, street parking, cafe, lido, Worthing pier, beach huts, shelters, playground, promenade and full facilities you would expect of a seaside town centre.

If you are interested in watersports then it probably best to head a little west to Goring Gap beach that is very popular with windsurfing and kitesurfing.

Worthing Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
