Climping beach as with many along the Sussex coast has pebbles at high tide and is divided by wooden groynes. But at low tide, a huge expanse of dark, fine, hard-packed sand is exposed, making it an ideal spot for families and shallow swimming. Very popular with kitesurfers and windsurfers with car park grass areas for setting up.
Climping Beach is a quieter area of coastline than its neighbours of Littlehampton and Bognor Regis. Much of the area is now designated of scientific interest, and parts are a nature reserve, although many sections of the sand dunes are now fenced off to protect against erosion and help local species to thrive.
The actual beach is exposed and struggles with coastal erosion and can change it’s appearance between visits.
A great place to base a coastal walk, you can head in either direction; to the East you have the dune eco-system and then Littlehampton. To the West you are backed by countryside and then hit the many private beach estates (Elmer, Middleton-on-sea, Felpham) that line this stretch of Coast before Bognor Regis.
Facilities include car parking (charges apply), cafe with outdoor seating, toilets and outside shower, field available for hire. You also have a pub half a mile back up the road from the beach. Out of hours the car park is closed but a few spaces available on the road by the beach.
No jet skis, no camping.
Dogs allowed on lead in one of the carparks and free to roam on the beach.
Horses not allowed March to October during car park opening hours.
