East Wittering and Bracklesham are two villages lying adjacent to each other in the attractive coastal setting of Bracklesham Bay. The villages are quietly removed from the hustle and bustle of busier towns, and are known for the fantastic expanses of sandy beach exposed at low tide. These extend along the coast to East Head .

Watersports are an excellent reason for visiting the area, and activities can include pottering round exposed rock pools or taking the plunge with a local dive school and book a course allowing you to visit HMS Hazardous, one of Britain’s Protected Wrecks. Explore further back in time by discovering fossils on one of the walks organised by geologists with an extensive knowledge of the area.

Self catering accomodation is easy to find, while on the outskirts of the villages there are sites for tents caravans and motor homes. For more information about the area it is worth visiting the East Wittering and Bracklesham website.
