The sand and shingle beach of Felpham is situated on the outskirts of the popular seaside resort of Bognor Regis. Given this it is little surprise that the beach here comes with all the classic British seaside trimmings including beach huts and a promenade.
Felpham beach itself is fairly typical of West Sussex beaches in that it is largely pebble and shingle divided by wooden groynes. As the tide drops out there are a few rock pools and a large area of sand.

Felpham Beach Reviews

Felpham is great for swimming at high tide and great for walking at low tide. Easy parking. Food and ice creams at the Boathouse. Tennis Courts. Great wide beach walkway suitable for walking, cycling all the way to Bognor and beyond. Pubs and shops a short walk away in Felpham Village.
Suitable for the perfect typical British family holiday.
Worth driving an extra 10 mins away

Beach is very steep shingle and difficult to access. Not dog friendly near cafés. Cyclists are also a menace on the promenade. West end of Bognor beach is better.
Great for dog walks and the beach promenade

Felpham is my favourite beach and promenade. Excellent for walking the dog. Whatever the weather or tide time you can head east along the promenade towards Middleton-on-Sea. The beach is great when the tide is out and on very low tides there is a vast expanse of sand and chalky rock pools. For swimming I prefer to go around high tide. There are two very good cafés, The Lobster Pot, serving excellent food from breakfast to lunch and evening meals and the more traditional, Boat House Cafe. Fabulous views along the coast line and out to sea. Parking is in local side roads and there is a free car park in Felpham Village.
