Lifeguards are on duty in the bathing season (mid May to mid September) from 9am to 6pm daily. If there is an emergency or if you require first aid during those times, report to the lifeguard base or alert a member of staff who will contact them for you. Our staff are specially trained to deal with various situations. We recommend you swim between the red and yellow flags as this marks the area that the lifeguards patrol. Dangerous currents and sand bars occur at “The Hinge” so swimming is prevented here.
Visit our Beach Safety page for more information.
East Head is the sand dune spit situated at the eastern side of the entrance to Chichester Harbour and is owned and managed by the National Trust.
Visit the East Head information page for further information.
Toilets & Showers
There are three blocks of toilets, each of which has an accessible toilet (RADAR keys available from the cafe, lifeguard base, office and kiosks during opening hours). There are also two cold outdoor beach showers. Several taps providing drinking water are located along the side of the road.
See these symbols on the map.
In summer, drivers may normally choose their parking place from 20 acres of mown grass. Please park considerately by not parking in the fire breaks and by not blocking any other vehicles. Remember not to leave your valuables in your vehicle and please do not leave dogs unattended in your vehicle.
