Miles of sandy beach hide all sorts of fun for the family in Camber

Beaches in Hastings & 1066 Country

Our beautiful stretch of coast has four different beaches to choose from, so you're bound to find to perfect spot for old-fashioned day at the seaside.

Take Hastings beach for starters; it's got miles of immaculate beach with a mix of pebbles and sand, and you're always a short walk from the town's facilities and attractions.

A child-friendly section of the beach at Pelham is marked with sea creature landmarks so children can identify their location on the beach. 

Just along the coast, Pevensey offers a peaceful seaside spot, with an unspoilt beach popular with wind surfers.

Nestled between Hastings and Pevensey is the traditional seaside resort of Bexhill where you can find the perfect ingredients for a day at the seaside, with tea rooms, cafés and ice cream parlours lining the promenade.

Camber Sands, near Rye is a sandy paradise for holidaymakers.

With miles of unspoilt sand drawing your eye to the horizon, you'll never need a foreign holiday again.

Your kids will love the freedom to explore the sand dunes, mess around in the shallow water or explore the treasures left behind by the sea.

Remember our top tips for staying safe at the seaside:

Sea Safety:

  • Always swim close to the shore

  • Do not jump or dive from breakwaters or other structures

  • Do not swim after drinking alcohol or eating

  • Do not take inflatables into the water - they can get blown out to sea easily 

Sun Safety:

  • Never let your skin turn red

  • Wear at least 'factor 15' sun protection lotion

  • Take extra care with children

  • Free sun protection lotion is available from the Lifeguard Station
