Season: spring

Bright sunshine greeted me for this seasonal re-visit, with a rising tide at Pagham.  The beach is made up of steep shingle and care needs to be taken when bathing.  The Yacht Club is the hub of the beach at the weekend and I noticed plenty of social activity and sailing in front of the club.  It’s a pleasure to walk along the shingle, towards the nature reserve just across the water from this part of the beach.

Season: winter

Pagham Beach is shingle and although the tide does not go out very far, it still provides a safe and relaxing placed to visit and enjoy.  Within walking distance, there is a local café and gift shop, with plenty of places to eat and stay nearby.  The highlight of this area is the 1,500 acre Pagham Nature Reserve, situated a short distance away to the west of the beach.  In the summer, Pagham is a popular visitor destination.  It’s a south east facing shingle beach and has a large shingle bar at the harbour entrance, which makes for excellent windsurfing and sailing. A WW2 Mulberry Harbour platform is visible at low tide.  Of local historic interest are the old railway carriages, still in use for some of the beach houses.
