Visit Fairlight Glen beach
The rocky beach at Fairlight Glen (also known as Covehurst Bay) is a quiet spot just past Fairlight south of Pett Level, in East Sussex.
This remote beach along the Saxon Shore Way can be difficult to get to and is known as a popular naturist spot as well as a good place to find fossils.
The beach is reached by a short walk through the wooded glen and down small steep steps down to the shore. The shingle and rock give way to rock pools and some sand at low tide.
Fairlight Glen Waterfall
It is an absolutely enchanting walk through the glen to the beach. Look for the ‘dripping well’ a natural formation and small streams and waterfalls along the way.
To the western end of the beach is the naturist area. To get there, you can walk along the path from Hastings.
On a sunny day there may be a numbers of day trippers enjoying the beach. Swimmers should look out for and avoid some of the large rock just hidden under the sea.
For safety reasons always stay away from the foot of the cliffs due to rockfall and cliff erosion.
This beach is dog friendly all year round.
