Ferring Beach

Visit Ferring Beach

Ferring beach on the Sussex coast is an unspoilt pebble and sand beach, close to Goring and Worthing. The beach runs from The Bluebird Cafe on West Drive, east towards Goring. You can walk from the cafe along the beach or down Patterson’s Walk, the footpath that runs between the seafront properties and the the beach.

This part of the coast is popular with kitesurfers and windsurfers and you can swim here. There are no lifeguards on duty, but coastal wardens are on patrol in the holidays.

You can ride horses on this beach, and you will often see them riding along the seashore.

Stop in at the Bluebird cafe on West Drive for a snack. Great place and also dog friendly!

There is parking near the Cafe on West Drive or at the other end of the the footpath on Marine Drive. You will see signs for the South Coast Cycle Route, pointing towards Goring.
