Exploring the Sussex Coast | Eastbourne, Rye and Camber Sands


I’m back with the second part of our holiday to Sussex! If you didn’t see part one you can catch up with that here. In that post I covered our time in Hastings, St Leonards and Bexhill. In this post I’m talking about Rye, Camber Sands and Eastbourne.

First up is absolutely stunning Beachy Head with it’s white cliffs and pretty lighthouse. We ended up here after spending the day in Brighton, on the way back over to Hastings we decided to stop off to check it out and I’m so glad we did as the views are just breath taking.

After that we were all hungry and didn’t fancy cooking when we got back so we headed into Eastbourne and grabbed some fish and chips to eat on the beach. It was perfect summer evening and really made me wish that we live closer to the sea.

The following day we visited Rye, which is a picturesque little village packed full of charm. We had a wander around the cobbled streets, visited the castle and admired the many medieval buildings that line the streets. We stopped for lunch at The Apothecary which was lovely and comes highly recommended by us.

Camber Sands was our next planned stop after Rye, as it is right next door but the weather wasn’t on our side so we had to postpone it until the next day. Most of the beaches in East Sussex are shingle so it was lovely to come across a beautiful sandy one which is apparently home to the only sand dunes in East Sussex. It was a very windy day though and sandy beaches on windy days aren’t the best so our visit was only brief. I would love to re visit one day as it really is a stunning beach.

If you’ve never visited the Sussex coast I would highly recommend it, we had an amazing time there and would love to go back again one day. The beaches are gorgeous and there is just so much to see and do if you want to keep busy, making it an ideal location for families.

Thanks for reading.

    Some beautiful photos – the sky in those last two is lovely! I really love Rye and Camber. We had a little babymoon there shortly before the now nearly-six-year-old was born, and I always remember that trip fondly when we go. Not been for a while, mind you, so we must do it soon! Thanks for sharing! #KCACOLS
