Bracklesham Bay, West Sussex: A great place to visit this summer

4th July, 2023

Nestled along the stunning coastline of West Sussex, Bracklesham Bay is a firm favourite with visitors all year around – and it’s not hard to see why – the beautiful beach, a fossil-hunter heritage and tasty food (if we don’t say so ourselves!) right on the shoreline is a dream combo.

Sunsets to dream of:

Bracklesham Bay is renowned for its unspoiled natural beauty and with views across to the Isle Of Wight and Portsmouth, visitors are regularly treated to stunning sunsets – ideal for breaking out a glass of something and tucking into Billy’s famous Fish & Chips. Indeed, Bracklesham Bay was voted one of the world’s best sunsets by Far & Wide magazine. What’s more, this dog friendly beach is ideal for pet owners.

Watersports Haven:

For the adventurous souls, Bracklesham Bay is a haven for water sports enthusiasts. With its favorable wind conditions and sometimes wild waves, it’s the perfect spot for windsurfing, kitesurfing and paddleboarding. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a beginner, local water sports schools and rental facilities are available to cater to your needs. You’ll often see a host of regular swimmers heading out for a dip come rain or shine – we’re made of tough stuff in the Witterings!

Nearby Attractions:

Bracklesham Bay’s prime location allows visitors to easily explore the surrounding area. A stones throw from East Wittering and West Wittering, but often much less chaotic than its well known neighbours. Just a short drive away, you’ll find the historic city of Chichester, with its sensational cathedral and medieval walls. The South Downs National Park, with its rolling hills and breathtaking landscapes, is also within reach, offering countless opportunities for hiking, cycling and pub lunches on chilly winters’ afternoons.
