Brighton Beach

Brighton BeachBrighton’s gorgeous pebbled beach is one of its main attractions. It’s perfect for sunbathing on a hot summer’s day with the ocean at your feet.

If it’s a bit chilly to swim, stroll along the promenade stopping off at one of the many beachfront restaurants, bars and cafés. Or hire a bike to cycle the length of the beach in the promenade’s excellent bicycle lane.

If you’re staying for the evening, why not have a barbecue on the beach? As night falls, head over to the Victorian beachfront arches where you’ll find the best clubs in Brighton.
