We've been visiting here for the last 20 years! It takes me back to summers with my nan. Now I can take my children here. We live a lot closer to other beaches but chose to drive nearly two hours to wittering! :) Lots of life guards and a nice clean beach. Sand that goes on forever! A small cafe... More

Will always be a favourite beach of mine having misspent many days of my youth down here and, more recently, brought my own children down here quite a lot. Went here last week on one of the busiest days of the year and - yup - it was absolutely heaving, however it is still a cracking beach. Going slightly out... More

We visited the beach for the first time based on the good reviews here. We expected traffic and long queues, but not as bad as I expected. If you want queues, try going to Gunwarf Quays on a Saturday! Yes the parking does cost £8, but parking spaces are aplenty. They also have excellent tap facilities where you can wash... More

I had a good day. 2 hours. It was not for my taste. Staying at bunn down the road we thought to give it a good go on the understanding of the reviews iv seen. Well for me no waiting time apart from 30 mins. The beach was great but cant possibly trust others in regards to personale belongings .... More

We had a lovely afternoon in the sunshine on the beach but hadn't got £8 cash with us so half way along the car park queue I jumped out with the children and my husband turned the car around and parked out on a side road a good walk away. £8 is a bit steep but gets you fairly close... More

A super beach, for everyone. Plenty of shallow water & the beach was generally very clean...was disappointing to see lots of cigarette ends on the sand though. Parking on the West Wittering Estate is value for money - car park is very close to the beach, with good facilities close-by (first aid, toilets, cafe, lifeguards). Make sure you have the... More

This must be one of the best beaches to visit in the uk. We went in a Sunday the parking was 8.00 for the day. You drive into park there is a lovely big grass area and although there is cars park there is still enough room to have a family picnic, if Granny and Grandad do not feel like... More

We visited on a weekday in August, parking was £6.50 for the day, apparently the price comes down at 3pm and again at 5pm. The car park gets locked at 8.30pm, I think. There is masses of parking space. There are reasonable toilet facilities, taps to wash sand off feet etc, there's also a place selling burgers, chips, drinks etc.... More

I'm born and bred on south coast and until today have never been (41 years old) we had a awesome day, great weather with kids who spent the day in the sea with body boards, jumping waves. Will be our beach of choice..

We recently visited here for the day on the spur of the moment as the weather was so good. We always came here for our holidays when I was a child and it has barely changed in 50 years. Access: West Wittering is a small village which happens to have one of the few sandy beaches along this part of... More
