Trip Advisor has given wrong location for Brighton Beach. It shows that Brighton Beach in the middle of Cornwall intead of in Brighton itself. As a result of that Waze had directed me to go to Cornwall. I started to realise it when the road sign showed me that I was heading west instead of south from London. It was... More

There is always some entertainment on the beach. Usually music, grab a beer or some procesco, definitely do some people watching. Walk along the pier...this is a typical British seaside resort..you must visit Brighton

I'm definitely glad that I made the visit down to Brighton but I definitely wouldn't swap it for the beaches we have back in New Zealand - I actually felt sorry for those who have to make do with Brighton Beach for their summer holidays; the beach is pebbly and has no sand, there are seagulls everywhere, the wind is...

An OK beach. Too 'pebbly' and windy but worth a visit nevertheless. Enough distractions - deck-chairs, amusement arcades, people-watching etc to make it a relaxing & interesting experience.

The beach is a pebble beach with no sand, so not exactly comfortable to lay on for too long, but at least you won't get covered in sand! It can get crowded at times has a fun relaxing atmosphere.

Not at all a Mediterranean Beach! but the opposite. crowded, full of cheap food shops and tourist memorabilia, windy, with the curse of the seagull's stealing food, horrible and smelly portable toilets. If it wasn't for the many languages heard and the clothes worn, it could have been the 50's. Ideal for kids and old people. That said it has... More

It really looks like the pictures that are frequently posted in the papers, it's kept nice and clean despite all of the tourists!
