Bexhill Beach

Bexhill Beach - East Sussex

© Sharon Webster

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.

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