This is more-or-less the area between the beach huts and the sea. It is marked.  Dogs are allowed everywhere on the beach between the end of September to the end of April.

Gorgeous beach

Really lovely walk, some areas are dog free zone though so please look at the signs. You have to book parking before hand through just park. Great cafe as well.

We love this beach! Yes, parking IS expensive, but well worth it imho! Haven't visited this year due to weather & only had our dogs since January/June, but awaiting an Indian summer day!

The only downside is the cost of the car park so to make it worthwhile spend a good few hours. We had the place to ourselves on Christmas Eve and it was stunning weather.

The car park is very expensive and the road can be busy. For dogs it is better to drive right to the end of the large car park and walk on the national trust East Head - only accessed by car from West Wittering car park but you can walk across the fields to it from West Wittering village. Our dogs love East Head!
