With a wonderful stretch of open countryside behind a natural non-commercialised sandy beach, West Wittering is a favourite destination for a family day out.

Cars park very close to the beach on extensive areas of mown grass which are also perfect for picnics, barbeques and games. Swimming and paddling are popular in the sandy tidal pools and the area is a mecca for wind and kite surfers. In summer this unique site can accommodate crowds yet provide solitude. The area is internationally recognised for its wild natural beauty and wildlife.
