East Beach

East Beach

What's Here

The largest beach in Selsey, stretching towards Pagham Harbour, East Beach is a beautiful long expanse of shingle divided by wooden groynes.

Oval Field Beach

Oval Field Beach

What's Here

Beyond Oval Field lies perhaps the most secretive of Selsey’s beaches, the true sandy beach of Selsey. With no facilities bar the benches and picnic tables in Oval Field itself, this is the most secluded stretch of the coastline and therefore maybe the most natural.

Pagham Harbour

Pagham Harbour

What's Here

At the mouth of Pagham Harbour lies a shingle spit, creating a quiet beach on the north eastern side of Selsey. This is the perfect retreat to see an abundance of wildlife in its protected natural habitat.

Marine Beach

Marine Beach

What's Here

On a fine day the Isle of Wight can be clearly seen from Marine Beach, as well as ships in the English Channel. Enjoy a cup of tea from the seasonal kiosk as you breathe in the clean air afforded by being near the very tip of the peninsula.
