On the Water
  • Watersports enthusiasts love this part of the UK’s south coast for sailing, windsurfing and other on-the-water activities. Learn to sail, kayak or windsurf with Yacht Clubs at Bognor Regis (Aldwick)Felpham or Pagham.
  • When the tide goes out, the flat sands on the beach are perfect for activities like beach volleyball or tennis and buildng sandcastles and stone sculptures too of course.
  • Take a look at the town's very own beach webcam available to view 24/7  
  • Please note, there are dog restrictions in place on this beach over the summer. See more information in Beach FAQs.
  • You're just a short step from some great shopping opportunities in the nearby town centre just a couple of minutes' walk through the Edwardian Arcade.
Beaches in the neighbouring villages of Aldwick,Pagham,Felpham and Middleton are usually less busy and great for a relaxing walk along the tideline and for soaking up the fresh sea air.
Note that some village beach areas are only accessible by walking along the beach itself at low tide, as several private estates adjoin the beach. Please be careful and check the tide times. We suggest the BBC's Tide Tables website for tide information.
