Harbour Beach

ID: 132
Area: West Sussex
Postcode: BN43
Description: The beach lies within a harbour and is composed of shingle and gravel, with a number of wooden groynes sloping into the sea. At low tide a small area of wet sand and gravel is exposed. Behind the beach is a small area of sand, on which sits a Lighthouse - a working structure, originally built in the mid-19th century. Behind the lighthouse runs the A259 and a row of houses. The RNLI lifeboat station is adjacent to the beach. The harbour is used by a mix of commercial and leisure vessels. At the entrance to the harbour, across from the beach are the remains of a Redoubt, fort. An interesting location for filmmakers.
