This pebbly beach is situated on the Seven Sisters cliffs near Beachy Head. It is an important part of the Seaford to Beachy Head SSSI and is a marine nature reserve. Low tide reveals rock pools for observing sea life. Wind surfing, surfing and canoeing are available in the waters, which are Marine Conservation Society Recommended for their cleanliness.
There are plenty of hiking and walking routes, mountain bike trails and cycle paths to explore above the beach. However, severe erosion of the chalk cliffs in recent years has prompted warnings to visitors to exercise extreme caution when using the beach or cliff-side paths.
