Instead of heading straight to Brighton Beach next time the sun shines, try swapping pebbles for sand, with a trip to Saltdean instead.

A five-mile cycle from Brighton’s busy promenade, shingle beach merges into white cliffs that bear the brunt of this crashing stretch of coastline. Stop for a dip in the famous outdoor lido, or if hunger strikes, nip into the Saltdean Tavern for a traditional English carvery.

Then the search is on for the cliff-top steps, which lead you down to the Undercliff Walk – a waterside stretch of seawall where stranded crabs and other creatures gather in rock pools, waiting for curious eyes and the incoming tide. Oh, and here’s a tip if you decide to wait with them: bring your waterproofs, and hold on tight. Or the sea won’t be the only thing looking rough on the way home.
