“rip off parking fee's”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

£8.00 to park in a plain field next to the beach for just a few hours is a complete rip off and there's nothing you can do or likely to do since you will have queued for miles to get to the toll booth where then and only then will you fid out you have been duped, sure you can turn round but having endured the lengthy queue and the endless ridiculing from the hot and bothered occupants in your vehicle most would just want to get parked and on the beach. No one likes being trapped or duped into such a situation but the estate owner clearly knows how to make money from the public. Once inside the toilets are poor and dirty, the food in the café is over priced, no one seems to police the no dogs signs and so dog mess is a worry.

“Very Expensive Parking!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

We enjoyed the excellent beach with the dogs on a perfect midsummer's day. But why is parking SO very expensive? £4.50 for a 2 hour walk on the beach is too much!

“great day out”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Must admit, have been coming here for years, but was reminded of just what a great place this is...listed recently as one of the top 15 beaches in the UK. Remember it's a private beach, so expect to pay for parking, but once you're there you can stay all day! Café, shop, surfing, sand, sea,,,just need the sun!

“Outstanding beach.. but leave the car at home”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

I stayed a mile up the road from the beach and decided to walk down.. A good decision as the queue of cars waiting to park was terrible and once you get to the front of the queue it will cost you at least £6.50 to park .. The area is part of a private estate and they know how to charge..! Arriving on foot is all free .
After a day or two I opted for the beach at East Wittering which is stony but a lot quieter and with plenty of nearby shops and bars
