This beach is mainly shingle, but low tide will reveal rock pools and a stretch of sand. It has been awarded a Quality Coast Award for its cleanliness. Enjoy bathing, windsurfing, kayaking, sailing and jet skiing here – the waters are zoned for water sports activities.
Nearby Highwoods, one of the few remaining examples of traditional coppiced woodlands left in East Sussex, is a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest. Otherwise, stroll along the 3.2km (2 mi) promenade and enjoy this typical seaside town.
