Camber Sands, Camber

#1 of 42 in Things to do in Rye
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, Rye Edition.

  • One of the best sandy beaches in the UK. Wide open spaces, two cafes, big sand dunes, new coast guards, dogs allowed on beaches (check on times), free parking on road and pad carparks. Epic.  more »

  • Great beach but watch out on bank holidays can take an extra full hour to get near the car park. Off street parking available on some roads. Shops are nearby and you can hire sundecks if needed. We enjoyed our 2nd visit and this is probably the beach of choice coming from London
  • Great beach, one of the best beaches I've been to and fantastic view of horizon. Only problem not much is parking space.
  • One of the finest sandy beach near London
  • Beautiful place. Best to avoid on public holiday as traffic can be bad
  • Best beach in Sussex. Might be warmest sea in UK.
