Cooden is your typical Sussex beach, so expect a long stretch of shingle divided up by wooden groynes and you won't be disappointed. At low tide there are some sandy flats exposed.
This stretch of coast is popular with kite surfers and windsurfers. It is also known for jet skiing although a 8 knot speed limit applies.
Getting to Cooden beach couldn't be easier as there is a train station practically on the beach. And for those arriving by car there is free parking on the beach front.
