The beach at Shoreham-by-Sea lies immediately to the west of the historic harbour, where the River Adur enters the sea. It is backed by Beach Road and a number of residential buildings.
The large beach, which slopes quite steeply in parts, is composed of a mixture of shingle with occasional rocky areas. At low tide a large expanse of wet sand and shingle is exposed.
Shoreham-by-Sea beach is used by windsurfers, sailors and kite surfers, as well as being used by walkers. The Monarch’s Way long-distance footpath runs close to the beach.
Behind the beach are a couple of grassy areas, once of which has a children’s play area.

Clean, not too busy, mainly used by families . Car Park nearby at a small charge . What’s not to like?
