4.5 miles, a lot of it on sand/shingle but not a fast pace so should be suitable for most

This walk explores Climping Beach, a quieter area of coastline than its neighbours of Littlehampton and Bognor Regis. Much of the area is now designated of scientific interest, and parts are a nature reserve. Many sections of the sand dunes are now fenced off to protect against erosion and help local species to thrive. In the dunes in the summer, the lesser spotted nudist can be found hiding amongst the long grasses.

The actual beach is exposed and struggles with coastal erosion and can change its appearance between visits. A great place to base a coastal walk as at high tide there is pebble and grass banks whilst at low tide flat hard compact sand of the beach. If the weather is good, there may be time for a quick dip so bring your towels and cozzies.  If you bring a camera please check people are happy to have their picture taken.

Halfway around we will stop for a drink/meal at the Black Horse Inn Climping BN17 5RL (no website) just inland (see Food and Drink). We will try to be as quick as we can (but not rushed) to ensure we are back before nightfall or at least on well defined or lit paths/roads.

The event will close at 12.30 on the day of the walk and you will be unable to register or take yourself off the event after this time.
