“Even in the winter, its a great bracing walk”
Reviewed December 12, 2012

I just love the English beaches, they are all so different. Even with pebbles, there is something quintessential about Brighton beach.
The whelk stall was open even on a day with zero degrees.

“Nice views but pebbly!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

It's nice and peaceful in the winter and vibrant with lots going on in the summer. Great for views of the old West Pier. However, it's all pebbles and can be a difficult stroll unless you're wearing sturdy footwear. Definitely wouldn't fancy going barefoot here!

“All stones, but then you knew that.”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

You know exactly what it is like, you have seen the pictures. Brighton Beach is nothing but stones. If you love beaches find somewhere else!

“A beach made of stones!”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

Hardly a sun worshipers paradise at the best of times, Brighton beach does not have sand, just loads of stones which makes me wonder why people want to sit on it? Of course I am spoilt coming from Australia but really, this beach is laughable which is a shame as the town itself is very good. So if you want to walk on soft sand in Brighton, you might have to go to a builders yard!

“Lovely”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

The beach though stoney is a lovely area. The little shops on the seafront provided a nice distraction
