Explore the West Sussex coastline, just a pebbles throw from your luxury beachfront accommodation.
Britain is home to some of the most magnificent and diverse beaches, and to us, few are more charming than the idyllic shores of West Sussex. A long sweep of golden and pebble-dashed shoreline, each beach is unique and offers something different to those who visit; whether that’s a playground for building sand-castles, a chance to take part in some watersports, or a scenic backdrop for long meandering walks.
A simple 90 minute journey from London, our luxury beachfront accommodation makes for the perfect destination to enjoy the wonders of West Sussex with friends and family. Sleeping 2 to 20 people, we take bookings all year round, and are suited to children of all ages, as well as those with four legs. So now that you’ve got your accommodation sorted, let’s dive into the beaches and what they have to offer.
East Preston Beach
Now we may be biased, but being dog-friendly all year round, this makes for our favourite beach in the area. Quite literally on your doorstep, this beach is reserved mainly for locals due to the difficulty in accessing it. This means less crowds, and more time to explore with your four-legged friend. Like most of the shores on this coast, it is a pebble beach with wooden groynes, with beautiful, flat sands revealing themselves at low tide. For the sailing enthusiasts amongst you, this is a popular sailing location. Or for those who prefer to stick to dry land, we love sunrise walks, whatever the season, then grabbing a bite to eat at the nearby Seahorse Café.
Rustington beach: Just along from East Preston, you will find Rustington Beach. Due to its south-westerly winds from the English Channel, this is a popular spot for kitesurfing. Like East Preston beach, it is fairly quiet, and very family friendly.
30 minute walk | West: 20 minute drive
Littlehampton: Littlehampton comprises of two beaches: West Beach and the award winning East Beach. Give your feet a rest and take in the view from Britain’s longest beach at East Beach. Or head to West Beach (one of three beaches in West Sussex with sand dune systems) for a more peaceful atmosphere and a stroll through the dunes on wooden walkways.
East: 50 minute walk | 10 minute drive || West: 1 hour 25 minute walk | 20 minute drive
Climping beach: A quiet dog-friendly beach, this is a great spot to enjoy the sounds of the ocean. Doctor Who fans won’t want to miss this one as it was used as a location in the early series during the 60s and 70s.
2 hour walk | 16 minute drive
Ferring Beach: Take your buckets and nets for some rock-pooling at low tide, followed by some lunch or a hot drink at the BlueBird cafe. There are beach huts, parking and you may also spot some horse riders if you go in the morning.
26 minute walk | 16 minute drive
Goring Beach: If you love stand-up paddleboarding then this is the place for you. Rent a board from Goring Gap if you are experienced, or try out a lesson or two. This beach is also the launch spot for the fishing boats, so if you are lucky, you may be able to buy some fresh fish as they unload.
1 hour walk | 15 minute drive
Worthing Beach: This colourful seaside town has plenty of shops, parking and places to grab a bite. Check out the seafront Dome cinema, which, running since 1911, is one of the oldest working cinemas in the country. Or try out some watersports such as windsurfing.
