Groove Armada could have written 'At the River' about West Wittering. A true gem and one of the best sandy beaches I've come across along this part of the south coast. Dogs welcomed on most parts of the beach as well as the odd horse. Go in winter for a truly special walk at low tide and remember to have... More

This was our second visit, the first in February also on a cold but sunny day. It is simply perfect, wide sandy beach, beautiful views, most of it open for dogs, no jet skis or anything noisy or disruptive just fresh air, blue sky and simple pleasure

Have been a regular visitor to West Witt for over 30 years and love the spectacular views and facilities on offer. On each visit we find something new to explore and always come away with a sense of calm and satisfaction. Note of caution....car park is chargeable but the money is put to good use (google it!!) and routes in... More

Had a lovely swim after years of not being to the beach and what a beach it was. Swimming along in the afternoon, I discover that after a few miles the sea bed rises to bring more sand which you can then walk along and cross over to enter the deeper waters!!! Unforgettable!!!

We went for a walk along West Wittering Beach last weekend and enjoyed it. It's a nice beach: clean and quiet (in November), with a varied view along its length. We also walked around the spit, which is nice. At this time of year, parking is also cheap at £2 for the day.

One of the best beaches in the area. Parking was plentiful and not totally a rip off. The beach though was a jewel. Wide expanses of clean golden sand. We walked about 10miles up and down the beach with the dog. She loved it.

£1 for parking out of season (began 1st November). Barrier entrance. Cash only, but machine gives change from notes. Plenty of parking. Cafe, but wasn't open. Toilets open & opposite the cafe. Picnic tables available. The beach is long, fairly wide, clean, sandy and great for a nice long stroll, looking out in to the English Channel and across to... More
