Offering wonderful views of Chichester Harbour and the South Downs beyond, the natural and unspoilt sandy beach of West Wittering has been a favourite destination for a family day out for generations. The highest water quality and excellent facilities have made it one of the premier Blue Flag beaches in the country. Click here to read more about the bathing water quality.
The extensive acres of neatly mown grass close to the beach are perfect for parking, and picnics. The sea is popular with wind and kite surfers, while shallow lagoons are left on extensive sandy flats at low tide. The whole area is internationally recognised for its wildlife, birds and unique beauty.
Our trained and dedicated staff endeavour to maintain and protect this special environment, and to provide a warm welcome to all our visitors whether here for a carefree traditional bucket and spade day in summer, or a brisk winter walk.
