One of the south coast’s most popular beaches, West Wittering, is offering 25 per cent discounts to those who book a car parking space before travelling.

Lifeguards are on duty from 10am daily – but swimmers must stay between the red and yellow flags and listen out for any safety advice.

Dogs are not permitted between groynes 14a & 18, in the area in front of the beach huts, and disposable barbecues are not permitted anywhere. Take a portable, reusable domestic barbecue or stove instead.
