A fifteen minute drive from Bognor Regis, Climping beach is a lovely rural beach set between Bognor Regis and Littlehampton.
The beach is a mix of shingle and pebbles, held in place by a series of wooden groynes. As the tide goes out, a huge area of sand is exposed. In contrast to popular town beaches nearby, Climping Beach is backed by low sand dunes and fields. Much of this area is protected, being designated a “Site of Special Scientific Interest” (SSSI). This means the sand dunes are fenced off to prevent further erosion in many places and to protect the unique flora and fauna that can be found here. One of Climping’s claims to fame is that it was used as a location in two of episodes of Doctor Who in the 1960s and 1970s.
We ask that you please take all your rubbish home with you and park in designated parking areas. This keeps our beaches clean and means many more people can enjoy our coastline. Thank you.
