West Wittering Beach

We decided to hit the seaside today and headed off to West Wittering.  We arrived at 10.30am and were already being directed to the overflow car park.  Talk about busy.  Parked up and found a spot on the beach near the sea and set up 'camp'.  Girls and hubby went straight off for a paddle/swim and I sat and relaxed.  Glad we had our little windbreak/shelter tent as it was a bit breezy but also allowed the girls somewhere to change in privacy.

At midday I went and got some food.  Wow! Talk about expensive - 3 small chips and 1 cod and chips was £19.50.  Captive audience.  Turns out I could have gotten away with cod and chips as the girls hardly touched theirs.  

Sat on the beach until 2pm and then headed off back to the car to drop our stuff off before getting an ice cream as our final beach treat.  Parking was atrocious!  Someone had cleverly put a cone behind our car to stop total morons other drivers parking behind us, when there were cars parked in front and no way out.  Unfortunately for some other drivers, the cones didn't arrive in time.  Three cars next to us had cars in front and behind, literally bumper to bumper!  Do people leave their brains behind on sunny days?

Drove back home via Midhurst, Petworth and Chiddingfold, stopping at The Crown in Chiddingfold for a nice, relaxing drink.  A good day.  Sand really does get everywhere though!


  1. Lovely beach and we like that no dogs are allowed in summer. It does get crazy busy though so it's always worth getting there early (around 8am) in the summer to get a good parking slot.
