Suitable for all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

West Wittering Beach is a beautiful Blue Flag beach with wonderful views of Chichester.

The sandy beach, high quality bathing water and first-rate facilities has made this beach a staple favourite with generations of families and visitors who flock here to make the most of this unspoilt part of the British coastline, which is surrounded by wildlife and birds!

There’s room for everyone to enjoy the waves, as kite surfers and windsurfers bounce off the break while little ones paddle safely in the flat, glassy lagoons left at low tide. The beach café sells coffee; ice cream and takeaway food or you can enjoy your own picnic on the area of grass. Forgotten your bucket and spade? Don’t worry! The beach shop has everything you need to make the most of your day!

A warm welcome awaits you at this friendly, well-maintained stretch of sand.
