Season: autumn

The sun was out for this autumn visit to the wide expanse of sand at West Wittering.  On a low tide, with a warm breeze from the south west, a beach walk was mild and enjoyable.  Looking across to Hayling Island and to the Isle of Wight, interviewee Peter contemplated the proximity of the human world, with its trade in and out of Southampton and the natural beauty on this side of the water.

Season: spring

The most westerly of the manonabeach® Sussex beaches, West Wittering is also one of the most beautiful, with uncharacteristically soft sand and a fine view across The Solent to the Isle of Wight.  On this occasion the weather was mild and ry and the tide was low enough to enjoy shell hunting in the flat, lower reaches.  There are picturesque sand dunes behind the beach, which is a popular escape from Chichester and further beyond.

    The beach is a place where people say “Good Morning” and mean it, even smile, or crack a joke (rarely funny). A place for lifted spirits.
