Well maintained and lovely beach. Lots to do and to see. Shops and restaurants. Ice cream and seafood. Amusements for the young and seats for the old. Well worth a visit for everyone especially when the sun is out. Different scene in the evening if you want to PARTY...

The Lifguards are TERRIBLE- one going by the surname Branson. Worried that my husband had swum out a bit far, they EVENTUALLY went out to him, only then to get the police involved as if it was a criminal offence or something! I let then know that the police are rascists, they denied it! Subsequently the police in Brighton and... More

The first day was clear and we had a pretty scenic view on a clear day. Next day when I returned with big 400mm lens, was too cloudy to capture the coastline. But interesting "beach" - more river rock than sandy.

Brighton beach is lovely, very clean compared to other beaches I have been to. The pebbles make it a challenge to go for long walks on but it can be lovely to sit and watch/ listen to the sea. It is especially quiet and relaxing in the evening. What more can you want from a beach?

This is not really a beach it is a collection of stones/pebbles there isn't any sand (reason for 4 stars) so if you like a sandy beach you will be disappointed. The one thing I loved about this beach was that at night it was still busy with groups of people gathered around barbecues or open fires just enjoying life... More

Very surprised how clean it was and it also made it very relaxing at night when it wasn't so busy. The weather helped as it was ver warm and humid

We visited Brighton while staying in Camber last week. This is not as good as we thought at all. Car parking is absolutely disgusting and machines don't even take notes when they expect you to pay all this money. Brighton is just an average seaside town, pier was just typical with arcades and food areas all; of which was very... More

Not like our lovely sandy beaches in Australia! Having said that there is a lot to be said iconic beach steeped in history. Get your balance maneuvering over the pebbles and loose yourself in the breathtaking sea views. Don't take your car though, it's a nightmare to park and they are lightening fast with the parking inspectors checking expired meters.
