Felpham is a town beach and attracts locals and visitors alike, particularly on a weekend like this, during my re-visit. The sailing club was in full swing and I chatted to Peter on the terrace outside the club. Despite its proximity to Bognor Regis, this beach has a more genteel field, emphasised by the tidy lines of beach huts and the green area in front, between the huts and the promenade next to the beach itself.

Like most of the West Sussex beaches, Felpham is made up of pebbles and sand, divided by groynes, which act as sea defences. The receding tide reveals rock pools and large areas of flat beach. There is a row of beach huts and it’s more built up, with a promenade, than its more easterly neighbours, like Middleton-on-Sea. Felpham attracts more locals than visitors, due to its location behind the village, with most tourists heading to West Beach and East Beach in Bognor Regis itself.
