Create an itinerary including Camber Sands
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.

  • Sandy, peaceful beach where you can walk and walk to the sound of the water and birds, collect shells, and admire the naturally beautiful dunes.

  • Seems to be an unspoilt sandy beach. Plenty of parking, and lots of space for miles on the beach. The only sandy beach in the area, so be prepared for crowds at popular times.

  • 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.
  • Perfect , peaceful and gorgous. Best for the quiet beach break, if you want kids rides etc...you need a different beach .
  • Lovely area. Very bad parking on busy days though. Took an hour to drive as cars park on either side of a small road even though there are double yellows. No traffic wardens
  • Beautiful weather and a really nice place. We stayed at a caravan in the caravan park. It was an amazing experience!
