Half a mile to the south of the West Wittering village is a renowned large and unspoilt sandy beach. It’s a popular choice for families with wonderful views to the Isle of Wight and Hayling Island, extensive grasslands, silver sand dunes, calm waters and tidal pools; a perfect English beach! It’s an ideal spot for water sports, including surfing, kite surfing, windsurfing and SUP (stand up paddleboarding). Equipment hire and tuition are available from both 2XS and Shore Watersports. At the far end of West Wittering beach lies the sand dunes of East Head, with stunning views of Chichester harbour and the South Downs towards Goodwood. It’s a truly unique piece of coastline and a must visit. Several food outlets cater to different tastes, and a lifeguard service runs from mid-May to mid-September on this blue flag beach. The picturesque village of West Wittering has further eating options, including The Old House at Home pub and The Landings, which is very popular for coffees and a village store and a butcher.
