West Wittering, Chichester, West Sussex PO20 8AJ

Access to the beach is limited to a steep concrete ramp by the windsurf club. Access elsewhere is made extremely difficult due to shifting sand and pebbles.

There is no charge for this, just a deposit of £20 which is fully refunded when the wheelchair is returned.

These beach wheelchairs are popular and it is advisable to book in advance to avoid disappointment. To make a booking, please contact the estate office on 01243 514143 (Monday to Friday 9.00-16.00).

Each of our three toilet blocks has an accessible toilet which can be accessed with a RADAR key.  Keys are available from the kiosks, office, cafe and lifeguard tower, when open.
