Access to the beach is by one of two routes (see map):

1) Via a set of very steep steps, accessed by a path to the side of St Bede's

   school.

2) Via a surfaced, pushchair accessible road (pretty much traffic-free). Please

    note, this road is generally steep and not suitable for scooting.

Dogs are welcome on the beaches in this area, but must be kept under control. However, there is no shade on the beach, so please bear that in mind on hot days.

 

The lower promenade along Eastbourne seafront is smooth and wheel-friendly (though cycling is not permitted).

Children will enjoy a stop-off at the playground in Helen Gardens (see map) on the way back to the car; whilst you admire the sea views!
