From the fabulously long stretch of sand and shingle shore at East Wittering to the windswept dunes at East Head, there are a variety of walks to enjoy with your dog. Please note that during summer months, dogs are restricted from areas of West Wittering beach, which is roughly the area in front of the beach huts. Please remember that to walk at East Head or to enjoy time on the golden sands at West Wittering you must pre-book a car parking space all year round, using the Just Park App.   Dog walkers are also kindly asked that to help protect ground nesting birds, dogs are be kept on leads between March 1 and July 31 and you are asked to stay out of the roped off areas.
