No trip to the South Coast is complete without visiting the beach, even in the depths of winter a walk along the seafront with the waves crashing cant be beaten.
There are many beaches within striking distance of Swanborough, but if you want sand you need to go a little further afield.
Our local favorites are:
1. Seaford Beach
long beach with pebbles and small amounts of sand at low tide, Seaford town offers cafes, pubs and restaurants for refreshments.
Ideal for rock pooling at low tide, with pebbles at high tide. A walk along the Undercliff Walk eastwards takes you to a nice Art-Deco café after about 1 mile, with views out to sea.
Sheltered swimming from a pebbley beach.
4. Birling Gap
This National Trust beach with steps down from the top of the cliff has a café/visitor centre and a pebbley beach nestled under the cliffs.
5. Seven Sisters
World famous beach and view along the coast, but a walk of about 11/2 miles to reach it from the car park, worth the effort for the view!
6. Lancing beach
Pebble beach which is sandy at low tide. It also boasts one of our favourite dog friendly cafe/restaurants.
7. West Wittering
About an hour west from Swanborough Lakes offers lovely sandy beaches.
8. Camber Sands
Sandy beach about an hour to the east of Swanborough Lakes.
