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.

Tell us what you think about Pagham Beach

A south east facing shingle beach. There is a large shingle bar at the harbour entrance making this a good beach for windsurfing. A WW2 Mulberry Harbour platform protrudes from the sea at low tide. The local harbour is also a fantastic nature reserve with good access all around. Of local historic interest are the old railway carriages still in use for some of the beach houses.
