We are so fortunate to live in the South East of England, and we are spoiled to be surrounded by beautiful nature spots to visit.  Whilst our beach here in Worthing is lovely and great for families, sometimes you want to feel a little sand between your toes!

We’ve put together a short but sparkly list of beautiful sandy beaches that you can visit for a day out, to get that ‘holiday abroad’ feeling.       

East Beach Littlehampton

Award-winning East Beach at Littlehampton is most family-friendly beach in the area. With it’s sandy beach, promenade and large picnic greens you’ll have oodles of space to enjoy nature. East Beach is, we’re told, the safest beach in West Sussex and lifeguards patrol it in summer.       

West Wittering  

West Wittering sandy beach has been a favourite family beach for many years. It’s a premier Blue Flag beach with stunning views of Chichester Harbour and in the distance, the South Downs. The beach is well loved for for a picnic or a spot of kite surfing. The area is internationally recognised for its wildlife, birds and unique beauty. The closest town is Chichester and the postcode for your maps app is PO20 8AJ..    

Camber Sands 

Camber Sands Beach is covered with the finest gold sand. The best part of the beach is the western side, close to the River Rother and is nearly 5 miles east of the village. If you are a water sports fan, you’ll be happy to find Camber Sands is an ideal spot for windsurfing, kite-surfing and other watersports. Camber Sands remains mostly unspoilt and is a it a perfect location for a relaxing day in the sunshine. The nearest town is Rye; the postcode is TN31 7RT. It takes around 2hrs  from Worthing by car via A27   

Climping Beach  

Located about halfway between Littlehampton and Bognor Regis, Climping is a beautifully rural shingle beach perfect for a day in the sunshine. The unspoilt beauty of Climping has made it popular with walkers (dogs are welcome on the beach too), and at low tide there is a long expanse of sand just waiting to be explored by rock poolers big and small, while the shallow waters make it perfect for paddling.
