An amazingly beautiful sandy and pebbled long clean beach, framed by a row of exceptional architectural examples of nobility from yesteryears and seasoned with great shops bars cafés original entertainers and Brighton piers, the remnants of the old and the one that is alive and kicking for all who venture across its historic boards!

If you want you beach with stretches of golden sand then Brighton is not for you but it is clean with good swimming although you have to be careful at high tide because the beach drops quite severely.

Although there is a distinct lack of sand the beach is clean and very good for a brisk walk along the sea shore. If you walk the 2 miles as we did your calf's will burn walking on the pebbles. Although you don't feel so guilty eating your fish and chips!

What more could you want on a sunny evening. Fish of the day was whiting battered with chips. Very tasty.

Took the train from London to Brighton one day and walked down to the beach. The pebbled beach is clean, nice, fresh air and lots of people. Visited what was once the Old Indian Military Hospital. Enjoyable to the last bit.Very friendly locals.

Although the beach is stony it is very clean and well kept. In the evening it is really crowded with people eating and drinking and a lovely atmosphere. Loved it.

plenty of bars and cafe's on the sea-front, so there is enough whatever your needs. It's just a shame that the beach is not sandy...
