Climping Beach

Climping Beach is Sussex’s hidden secret. This stunning pebble-stoned beach is a little piece of oasis during the summer months.

When the tide is out, a long and beautiful sandy shoreline is exposed. Groynes and old sea defences are scattered across the beach, which creates a unique coastline, not seen anywhere else along the Sussex coast.

Did you know? Climping's Beach is a designated biological site of scientific interest and a nature reserve. The beach has been left exposed to the elements over the years, which has caused significant erosion along some of the footpaths and coastline

Things To Do At Climping

You could easily mistake Climping Beach for a spot in southern France due to its idyllic landscape. On a summer’s day, spend the morning or afternoon sunbathing with a good book, and seek shelter by one of the groynes.

In need of refreshments? Head to Climping Beach Café, which is currently right by the beach and car park, however, due to coastal erosion, this cafe will be moving more inland in the near future.

Enjoy an invigorating walk! Start off at Bognor Regis or Felpham Beach and make your way eastwards towards Elmer Beach, Climping and Littlehampton. Before making your way along the West Sussex coastline, make sure to check the tide times. 

There aren’t currently any water sports hire facilities at Climping Beach, however, you can hire paddle boards from our hotel – The Beachcroft Hotel, located between Felpham and Bognor Regis Beach or The Beach Watersports on Littlehampton Beach. You could even combine your visit to Climping with a massage at Bailiffscourt Spa.

Please note, to park directly by the beach, you will need to enter the pay and display car park, which also has access to public toilets.
