Explore Camber Sands, the only sand dune system in East Sussex, which stretches all the way to the Kent border. This long stretch of sandy beaches features plenty of convenient tourist facilities and offers a wide range of activities, including kitesurfing, kite landboarding, and kite buggying. These dunes, which are gradually getting bigger, form an important part of a nature conservation area teeming with native plant and animal life. Look up and try to spot the skylarks singing high above the dunes, and look for weever fish, which lie buried in the sand when the tide goes out. These fish have a ridge of sharp spikes across their back, so be careful not to step on one. Camber Sands is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Camber Edition.
Camber Sands Reviews
A picture perfect beach. Soft dry sand leads to wet sand and eventually the sea. It can get crowded but there's plenty of beach to go around. It isn't easy going with a pushchair over the dry sand, bu... more »

I visited the beach at the end of my 1 week holiday in the area, early September on a windy day. Beach is one of the rare sandy seaside of England. Because of the weather, there were not too many people, rather a few dog walker. There is a huge car park for parking where we see some running light notes about the weather, wind, low and high tide. Also there are toilets here, and cafe. But please note, car park is not free, and the time I visited they took only cash at the reception- so no ticket machine is around. From there we can walk through the dunes to the beach. I walked about an hour for one side, I am sure the same is on the other side, but because it was windy and close to rain, found better to get back to the cottage. I could imagine the beach in summertime when it is fairly overcrowded with people. There are lots of conch, shell on the beach and sometimes lovely, rare pebbles. I loved the fresh air, huge space around me, long sandy view and seaside without crowd and noise. Was really calming to walked down and back in that time.
The most glorious beach and on a sunny, warm day, it's magical and even breathtaking. Also great memories of coming down here as a kid, those amazing long summer hols. For parents with kids, it's very safe and even when the sea is in, it stays very shallow. Can't wait to bring my son back.
