Are you planning a trip to West Wittering Beach soon? Maybe you’re wondering if it’s worth the hype?

It looks like this year might be another year of staycations, and if you’re on the constant search for the best beach in the UK… then you’ve probably stumbled upon West Wittering Beach in your research!

Listen, I’m not going to beat around the bush here – In my opinion, West Wittering Beach is one of the best beaches in the UK (BY FAR). Why… I hear you ask? Let me explain!

These are the positives…

  • West Wittering Beach is spacious, and there’s plenty of room to spread out.
  • West Wittering Beach has plenty of food amenities. There are lots of food places (burgers, chips, other yummy stuff) and ice cream places, and even a cafe!
  • West Wittering Beach has toilets! And they’re not stinky or gross!
  • West Wittering Beach has plenty of parking, and it’s easy to find, and easy to book. Sure, you have to pay – but it’s not much and it’s worth it for guaranteed car space.
  • West Wittering Beach has beautiful calm and clear waters.
  • West Wittering Beach is scenic! It’s a genuinely beautiful beach to relax on.
  • West Wittering Beach is on the south coast, which means it gets great weather during the spring and summertime!
  • West Wittering Beach is dog friendly (yay!) which means you can bring your pup with you!

The one downside?

It was windy the day we visited for the photos below. This would’ve been fine if we had come prepared with some wind blockers – but we didn’t!

I don’t know if the beach is this windy all the time (I doubt it!) but it’s worth being prepared and taking a wind blocker just in case!

Now onto some other stuff!

OK, hopefully, I’ve convinced you of the merits of visiting this amazing UK beach! It’s a brilliant spot, and it’s a relaxing and lovely day out!
