With lots of facilities, including RNLI Lifeguards during the summer months you're just a short step from the main shopping centre, and the wide, flat easy access promenade is great for families, wheelchair users, cyclists and skaters.

The Beach on the Beach is an enclosed area full of washed beach sand, perfect for building sandcastles, easily accessible from the promenade -and is now open for the 2017 summer season.

Get out on the water with Paddle Boarding, Kayak and 'Fat Stick' concession,operated by TJ Board Hire near the Bandstand on the eastern promenade. 

Beaches in the neighbouring villages of Aldwick and Felpham are equally accessible but are usually quieter and great for relaxing and taking the sea air! 

Watersports enthusiasts love this part of the UK’s south coast for sailing, windsurfing and other on-the-water activities. When the tide goes out, the flat sands on the beach are perfect for activities like beach volleyball or tennis.
