Beaches and coast in Rye Bay, east sussex

There is so much to see and discover from the dramatic sandstone cliffs of Hastings Country Park Nature Reserve to the expanse of flat ground and big skies at Pett Level, Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, Romney Marshes and Dungeness.

The coast is most easily accessed at Winchelsea Beach or at Camber Sands with its tall sand dunes.  Beachcombing reveals many types of shells and surprised from Sea Mouse to Mermaid's Purse.  Many wading birds can be found on these beaches and seabirds catch their food, while seals are less frequent. 

The coastline of Rye Bay has changed dramatically, reflected in the military defences from Henry VIII's Camber Castle, to the Napoleonic defences of Martello Towers and the Royal Military Canal  At Pett Level there are the remains of an ancient forest where 6,000 year old tree trunks and leaves are revealed at low water.
