On a brisk and breezy July morning after visiting the Royal Pavillion and the Brighton Pier, we strolled along the beach and decided against plunging in as the water was rough and quite chilly, in fact there was only one brave soul in the water as the lifeguard on duty changed the conditions flag to red. The coastal views are... More

Being accustomed to sandy beaches, we were amazed how stony this beach we had heard so much about was. It was a rainy day so not good for sunbathing but we wandered along and enjoyed the beach stalls. Took the opportunity to buy some cooked whelks as a new taste.

We fancied getting away from the hustle of London and recommended to go and visit Brighton beach. The weather was lovely and the area was beautiful. It's across to commute from one side of London to the other longer than it took to get to Brighton from Waterloo. There is a lovely beach to stroll down and very popular pier.... More

Very long and clean beach. Mainly shingle/pebbles and gets busy in the summer. Life guards in all the best areas to swim.

For the first time to Brighton, as you arrive at the beach from the twenty minute walk from the train station, you can see some of the main attractions in straight away. Look to your right and you'll see the old burnt out ruin that was once-upon-a-time the West Pier.  The new i360 observation tower (due to be completed next... More

Love walking along here and visiting a bar or two. The pebbly beach is hard to walk on but great exercise. Sea looked ultra clean and blue.

Great idea, really works, watched Dirty Dancing, really good fun! Drinks a bit expensive! Worth paying extra and sitting on the seats! Get there early for the best seats!!

I guess it really depends what you expect... After visiting Eastbourne, we just couldn't enjoy the beach in Brighton... Too many people, too noisy, no places to sit...

Brighton has a small putting green with a old black windmill,not too far from the beach. Jump on number 12 bus and it stops outside. lovely views too.Great to get away from the busy front for hour or so.
