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 Edition.

  • Wow....Never been here before and was totally taken aback on just how large the beach is. Great scenery, lovely place, ideal for families and also a dog beach area further down.  more »
  • Used to stay here as a child and remembered the beach being beautiful sand. Was not disappointed - still beautiful sand. Prefer it when it’s less busy but was a nice walk along the shore nevertheless.  more »

  • The beach is ok but the area is iffy at best. Might be better out of season. The single road in and out in busy periods is an issue
  • Huge sandy beach and dunes with easy parking loved by our grandkids. Plenty of uncrowded areas available.
