West Wittering Beach is a beautiful expanse of golden sand just six miles south of Chichester where you can enjoy a day on the beach, walks or watersports.
How can I visit the beach?
To visit the beach by car you must pre book a car parking space using the Just Park app or website. Alternatively, visit westwitteringestate.co.uk and follow the links to Just Park. If the Car Park is sold out, there is no alternative parking nearby and you are kindly asked not to try to park in the vicinity as the area is residential and emergency vehicle access must be maintained.
Regular updates are available on the beach’s website, Facebook, Instagram, and Google channels.
You can also reach West Wittering beach by bicycle or on foot. The Salterns Way cycle path leads you directly to the beach from Chichester City Centre.
Is the beach dog friendly?
From 1st May to 30th September, dogs are excluded from the main swimming beach between groynes numbered 14a to 18, which broadly corresponds to the area in front of the line of beach huts. Dogs are welcome on the whole beach during the rest of the year.
Can I take part in Watersports?
Equipment hire, tuition and rescue service is available from 2XS, located at the beach. From March to October, windsurfing from the beach is restricted to members of the West Wittering Windsurf Club only. Kitesurfing is restricted to WWWC members throughout the year.
Where can I walk from the beach?
Enjoy a walk along the beach as far as the dunes of East Head, managed by the National Trust. You can also walk East to East Wittering beach where you’ll find a thriving high street with great places to shop, eat and drink.
