Simply stunning beach! Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, West Wittering beach is a fabulous long stretch of unspoilt, beautifully clean, fine golden sand. It is really spectacular at any time of year. At low tide, the sea goes out a long way, creating lots of lovely safe splash pools for younger children.
