Bexhill Beach

The traditional south coast seaside resort of Bexhill is maybe not in its prime these days but it is still a good spot for a family day at the beach.

Those of you familiar with the beaches of Sussex will not be surprised to read the beach is mainly shingle held in place by a series of wooden groynes. At low tide a good expanse of fairly hard sand is exposed though.

Swimming is generally safe at Bexhill and there are now RNLI lifeguards on duty during the summer with flagged areas for bathing.

Bexhill’s seaside pedigree is clear with a good long section of promenade not to mention some very nice beach huts.
