This stunning stretch of sandy beach is home to the only sand dune system in East Sussex. Camber Sands is the perfect get-away with unspoilt views of sand and sea stretching for miles.
This beach is famous for the long ridges of sand dunes leading down to miles of soft golden sands. Camber has been the location for many films, especially if 'desert shots' are required. When planning a day on the sands it is well worth checking the local tide tables as the extensive shallows at low tide make for a very long walk before it is deep enough to swim. With such a large open space, power kites are a popular pastime - a very colourful sight to see. It is very busy in the summer months
It is home to the only sand dune system in East Sussex, which provides a valuable natural habitat to many animals and plants.
Access to the beach is direct from a number of public car parks. Parking is pay on entry during the summer period from Easter to the end of September. During the winter months Pay and Display ticket machines operate. The gates to the car park are locked at 8pm each evening. The unbroken length and quality of both beach and sea water enable Camber Sands to accommodate almost every type of beach activity.
There are no lifeguard or emergency facilities on site. There is zoning in place to keep swimmers and water sports apart.
