Best beaches in West Sussex

The Witterings, Bracklesham Bay and more…

If you love beach holidays, then you’ve come to the right place.

From our quiet Holiday Park you can enjoy direct access to Bracklesham Bay and seven miles of sand and shingle beaches – all just a few minutes’ walk from your accommodation.

The West Sussex coastline is home to some truly jaw-dropping beaches, including the spectacular Witterings. But, which ones are worth exploring? We’ve put together a mini guide to just a few of our favourites…

Bracklesham Bay

Bracklesham Bay

This popular beach is our nearest, with direct access from our Holiday Park (so it’s something of a must-visit during your stay). It is mainly shingle but sandier towards the water’s edge and is a great spot for swimming and walking, whilst there’s plenty of amenities in the village that overlooks the beach

East Wittering

We love East Wittering! It is typical of many beaches in the region, with its shelving shingle and wooden groynes. As the tide goes out expansive sand flats are revealed. East Wittering is 2 miles from its more popular neighbour, West Wittering, and remains a good choice for those who prefer a quieter location.

East Wittering

West Wittering

Located at the mouth of Chichester Harbour, West Wittering is one of the jewels in the crown of the West Sussex region. This attractive sandy beach and is within a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). It’s an ideal beach for sunbathing, paddling and watersports such as surfing, windsurfing and kite-surfing when conditions are right. Nearby facilities include toilets, showers, parking and a café.

West Wittering East Head

Considered by many to be one of the best beaches in West Sussex, this delightful sand dune spit lies on the eastern side of the entrance to Chichester Harbour. This sandy beach, backed by dunes and salt marshes which provides a habitat for many rare species of plant and animal life.



If you don’t mind a bit of a drive then head east towards Bognor Regis and discover Middleton-on-Sea Beach. It is one of the sunniest spots in the UK and is relatively quiet and tranquil, being used mostly by locals walking their dogs.
