Saltdean

Saltdean, Sussex

Bring your waterproofs and take on the tide in East Sussex.

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.
