Camber Beach

Camber Sands is situated at the mouth of the river Rother in Rye Bay, East Sussex. The bathing water is a wide expanse of fine sand with a shallow profile and a long tidal range. It is part of a large embayment and is truncated to the west by the training wall of the River Rother. The bathing water is backed by sand dunes and a golf course to the west and a large caravan park to the east. The area close to the mouth of the Rother has strong currents.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
