Saltdean Beach

Saltdean is a village suburb to the east of Brighton, on the Sussex coast of the English Channel. Between the groynes, the gravel beach slopes steeply at first but levels off with more sand towards low water. Behind the beach there is the lido and at the foot of the cliff a promenade all the way to Brighton. This bathing water usually achieves high water quality standards.

The beach has been formed by recent coastal defence work - shingle between rock groynes. At low tide, rock pools are created and the beach is backed by high chalk cliffs.
