I visit here at least twice a year. Once you get over the drama of trying to find a parking space, it's delightful. I spent the day with a friend strolling and nibbling on every kind of treat I could find! Don't go here if you're on a diet! We love to walk the pier and have some donuts and... More

and for good reason. Brighton Beach is wonderful at any time of the year. In the Summer and between the Piers it is packed and I mean packed. In the Autumn it is gloriously wet, stormy and wind swept, in the Winter potentially deadly and deceptive (Beware the under-tow) In Spring wonderful to walk in the bracing wind. Yes, it... More

Not what I would call a beach but can't find a better place to sit and relax. Many attractions along the beach front a nice walk and nice views. Tried tonswim in the sea but was not happening water dropped too quickly and pebbles a pain to walk on barefoot.

But if you take in some of it's surroundings, i.e. the restaurants, cafes and shops which are set into the old arches, then Brighton has more to offer other coastal towns with stoney beaches. The beach itself earns merely three out of five TripAdvisor 'blobs'... More

First time I saw a beach just of pebbles. A lot of beach shops and clubs. On a clear day you can also see France.

To me it was a must to visit the Brighton Beach while I was in Brighton and I really enjoyed my time there. Great views, a few cafes and restaurants and of course the Brighton Pier and Brighton Wheel.

Lots of stones and pebbles on the beach,. Its a great place to be and nice in the summer but not if you want to explore your creative side with making sand creations!! Its cheap on the beach and its beautiful by the charming sea. Brighton is a lovely town full of life. Lots of shops and rock and lots... More

Always fun heading to the beach with the family, no mess on the beach. Good rides for the children to play on and decent selection of places to eat and drink.

These was a destination for fun, games and laughter. So many bars, food kiosks, traditional seaside stalls, two amusement arcades, rides suitable for all the family and famous fish and chip restaurant. Family activities available.

Clean shingle beach with stones that won't encourage sand castle builders. It's great to visit when quiet and certainly not during holiday times! The sea is always inviting but make sure you wear protection for your feet!
