Middleton-on-Sea Beach

Middleton-on-Sea Beach - West Sussex

© Peter Holmes and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence

The sandy beach of Middleton-on-Sea, just east of Bognor Regis, is one of the sunniest spots in the United Kingdom. For a beach along this stretch of coastline it is relatively quiet and tranquil, being used mostly by locals walking their dogs. The beach includes substantial sea defences against coastal erosion, including wooden groynes and a sea wall.

The reason the beach is so quiet is that there are few access points. A small, pay-for private car park can be found along Elmer Road, a little under 100 meters walk from the beach. Also, at the beach there are virtually no facilities. Pubs, restaurants, and shops can be found in Middleton-on-Sea itself.
