East Wittering Beach - West Sussex

East Wittering beach is typical of many beaches along England's south coast with its shelving shingle and wooden groynes. As the tide goes out expansive sand flats are revealed - the kind of sand that is perfect for building sand castles!

There are plenty of facilities in the village of East Wittering which is directly behind the beach.

Though a stony beach it’s lovely for swimming and i enjoy visiting my sister in law and her husband. It has a nice friendly vibe with good shops and eateries.

Very flat/good for dogs on leads.

Have lived here many years ago,so quite nostalgic.
Always preferred places with interesting small villages.
Coves,small bays and rock formation,for me is a must.!
Overall twittering is nice for a change,but I would never holiday there.

What did we get wrong?
