A perfect place to relax

Although the beach is pebbly, it is still a great place to sit and watch the water. Deckchairs can be hired for £2.00. Loads of waterfront cafe's and bars with live music playing... read more

I have visited Brighton for over 50 years. The last time we stayed was about 4 years ago and it was clean, the new restaurants on the front/beach were just right and it was a friendly place. This week we stayed for 2 nights. We still love the lanes and the pier but the beach area is now so noisy... More

Although the beach is pebbly, it is still a great place to sit and watch the water. Deckchairs can be hired for £2.00. Loads of waterfront cafe's and bars with live music playing. Also activities such as basketball and volleyball being played. Plenty for young children too with the carousel and toddler rides and the essential amusement arcades. A great... More

Gorgeous views, blue sea and nice clean pebble beach (difficult to walk on though if like me have walking difficulties). We caught the open top bus from the promenade and saw all the sites

Is sand!! Its beautiful, its huge and the beach front is amazing. What I love in the summer is everyone comes down and BBQs on the beach. All races, all accents and nations and everyone is happy. Brighton beach is one of the main reasons I moved to Brighton - it is amazing. There is often fun fairs, big screen... More

This was our first visit to Brighton, the weather was hot and sunny, so it was absolutely great to get onto the beach. Everywhere was busy with people enjoying themselves. We had a fantastic meal, sitting at one of the beach cafes and enjoying the sunshine. However, I am not so sure that we would have enjoyed ourselves quite so... More

Definitely come to the beach in good weather - it's a little busier but worth the crows to enjoy the beach,

I love Brighton Beach! The views are spectacular and when the weather is warm it's perfect for chilling out with friends, maybe go for a paddle/swim if the sea isn't too rough. It's so close to lots of shops, food and you've got the pier. It's often busy, but that adds to the atmosphere. What's not to love!?
