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, Camber Edition.
Camber Sands Reviews
Sorry, but I wasn't particularly impressed with Camber Sands as there wasn't much to do near where we stayed. Think you would struggle without a car. Also the beaches were not as nice as at home. more »
HUGE sandy beaches, windy often but plenty to do. We have stayed in pontins and also the camber snad carav park and both were good, very clean. cheap and cheerful. more »
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.
