There’s nothing better for the soul than a good old-fashioned trip to the seaside. For once we didn’t have anything pressing to do so we decided to dust off the bucket and spade (when I actually remembered where I put it) and head to the coast…

The only problem was – where to? We didn’t want to spend hours cooped up in the car, so Dorset and the Jurassic Coast (my suggestion…) was vetoed. But then Brighton is always our regular go to, and we had heard reports from a friend that Camber Sands had been heaving the previous weekend. This didn’t sound too appealing, considering the last time we were there I was about six months pregnant on a beautiful, autumnal day and there was not a soul to be seen.

We eventually settled on West Wittering in West Sussex. Just over an hour and a half’s drive away, it was a manageable distance and a place we’d never ventured to.

    As with you Brighton is always our first choice of seaside trips although Whiststable stole our heart last year and we’ve just had a great Easter weekend there.
    The only thing our children miss is the sand so we always have a few trips to West Wittering in the Summer. I love the vast, clean beaches and the fact there are no fairground rides etc to distract them.
    We’ve promised them a BBQ on the beach there this year X
