Although at this time the beach is undergoing extensive refurbishment it has something for all. Restaurants, childrens rides, seafood, shops, pebble beach and everything else you could want.

Litter everywhere despite the abundance of unsightly industrial wheelie bins every ten feet. Rusting balustrade and a string of conmen with the three cups game along with stooges to rip off the tourists. Invest in some mileage and go somewhere else.

Pebbles and crowds aren't for me, so I preferred to view this while strolling rather than descend to it. To the left of the Pier (what seemed to be the quieter end) where the little train track runs, there was a rather creepy "shanty town" like structure that had us perplexed. It appeared to have stone sculptures inside and be... More

I have been to many seaside locations in the UK and Brighton Beach has to be up there as one of the best. Loads to do, eat and drink without too much "funfair" element. During the summer it is very busy and has a great atmosphere. The Pier is also very good.

Never been to Brighton Beach and I must say it is the best UK beach I have visited. Love the bars and shops which run along the beach. Great atmosphere with music playing. Plenty of food and drink to choose from also. Great couple of days here.

I get enough of those on the beaches of Devon where we have a house. Still we were able to get beach... More

Since I moved back to the area, I enjoy walking from Hove to Brighton, along the beach, and back. Busy in the summer, with loads of people roaming around the sea-side bars and shops, but just as much fun on a winter day (as long as it isn't rainy). I particularly like to watch the children play in the appropriate... More

The last time I was in Brighton was over 30 years ago, and the promenade by the beach has improved. The old properties along the seafront have been tastefully restored, with interesting shops/boutiques/restaurants under the arches. The British Airways i360 tower is a nice addition. Music from the bars along the beach is good and not obtrusive at night (we... More

We took a walk along the beach in a sunny Sunday and it was very busy, especially around Brighton pier. There are plenty of eating houses and bars where you can stop and revive in the heat. I enjoyed waking along and taking in the busy local scene. However it was a little too hectic for my tastes, and I... More
