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.
