Spent a couple of hours strolling along the beach. People watching, photo taking, sampling the sea food and coffees. Nice warm day, a buzz about the place. Some interesting arty shops to visit too. Will be back.

I have been studying here for the last 4 years and sea is my best place to be! I love it in the winter as you can see the snow touching the water but I love it most in the summer where thousands of people have fun and sunbathe on the long distance beach! Definitely one of the best beaches... More

Cold or not cold, I just had to go for short swim. Beach was packed with people, but only three of us in the water. Love it. The only problem about this place is that beach seems to be completely non organized and really full of all sorts of people. It is definitely not recommended for you to be alone... More

This is not a beach by Aussie definitions. The Stoney shoreline and freezing water is probably best left to those who are used to it. A chair is obviously a necessity for a day at the 'beach'. Also Brighton"s micro climate can go through all 4 seasons in one day. We woke to rain and grey skies and cold temps... More

Brighton beach is very nice if you do not require a toilet from Hove to past the pier there is only one toilet block which is a temporary portacabin with no disabled at all ,VERY POOR.

To be fair - I am from Forida, so I would hardly call Brighton Beach a "beach" in the traditional sense. Even by English standards. The shoreline is basically pebbles so if you are going to sunbathe rent one of the beach chairs. That being said, the atmoshphere here is lovely and the pubs, restuarants and shops along the boardwalk... More

Did not like the pebbles. Hurt feet so much! need to warn people to buy jelly shoes for comfort. Also thought it was strange that they were selling buckets and spades when there was no sand! lol
