Season: winter

Eastbourne sea front has several beaches.  The Pier to Wish Tower beaches are recommended by the Marine Conservation Society in their Good Beach Guide, as are  Holywell and Falling Sands, which offer rock pools full of marine life at low tide, as well as pretty gardens and the dramatic chalk cliffs.  The beaches from the east of the Pier to the harbour are known for their visitor attractions and water sports.  On this visit I heard from Julie, a French student and her visiting friend, Sandra, on the pier.

Season: spring

It was a languid scene by the sailing club west of the pier in the morning at Eastbourne.  The beach comprises shingle and it is steep, like others on this piece of coastline, but walking down to the sea is straightforward.  The town attracts visitors from far and wide.  The beach was peaceful for this visit, as Angela espoused the isolation and the appeal of the coast generally, compared to her inland Leicester origins.
