Beaches

East Beach

Our Beaches are a place of joy and fun most of the year provided a few precautions are taken by all who use them. Man-made hazards; including piers, groynes, breakwaters, jetties, and sea defences etc Take great caution when walking on wet or uneven surfaces, and look out for sharp objects. Remember to follow any safety signs you see. Do not swim near man-made structures. Never go swimming alone, tell someone where you will be and always be aware of the tides. Inflatable toys, airbeds and small dinghies are great fun in a pool, but you are advised not to use them in the sea as wind blowing off the land makes the sea look calm, flat and apparently safe, but it can sweep an inflatable out to sea very swiftly. It only takes a slight breeze to blow an inflatable out to sea. If you insist on bringing inflatables to the beach, please take the precautions . Why not join in protecting and maintaining your Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB)? There are a whole range of opportunities including a variety of practical outdoors tasks. We would like to encourage everyone that loves and enjoys Chichester Harbour AONB to become Friend of Chichester Harbour

       

West Beach

West Beach Selsey has one of the best beaches in West Sussex. Despite the Selsey area's many attractions, spending a day at the beach is still one of the best things to do in Selsey. And local delicacy Selsey Crab is well known as 100% certified delicious. The sea has already claimed part of Selsey way back in early history and the signs are that, in the long run, the sea will get Selsey in the end. Not surprisingly, residents are very worried about this and every big storm brings fresh fears, hurried repairs to sea defences and individual tales of real loss (of money if not, thank goodness, of life). Selsey is sitting in the firing line of the debate about the extent to which rising sea levels should be resisted - and Selsey has its own specially challenging flood problem to overcome. The sea may get the Maldives first, but it will get Selsey in the end too (and much of central London too in the long run I suppose). Even Selsey’s biggest fan couldn’t call it pretty, but it has plenty of attractions and a lively atmosphere in summer. There’s a strong sense of community too, although Selsey suffers from more than its fair share of vandalism and a little minor trouble from time to time, when the sunshine, sea air and lager combine in the wrong mixture. But don't let this put you off visiting Selsey - it's a peaceful place and deserves its status as a popular place for a holiday or a day trip.
