Family Fun


There are lots of ways to entertain the family in and around the Harbour.  There are walks to take that even the smallest of feet could manage, beach visits, pretty villages, boat trips, fishing and crabbing.  You can also find lots of information about what to see and do in Chichester Harbour on our Things to Do page.

We organise a number of events aimed at families, see our What's On section for the latest information. 

"I’m writing to thank you for a brilliant afternoon’s crabbing at Dell Quay on Thursday.   Our grand-children went from tearful terror at breakfast when being told what the day’s adventure would be to cries of delight, holding crabs and asking to do it again.  An outstandingly successful day!  A big thank you from us all." - Sue G


A Day Out at the Beach

Introduction | Directions | Map

You can never go wrong with a day on the beach, especially when it's a Blue Flag beach with miles of sand. So pack up your bucket and spade, get on your bikes and get ready for a fun-filled day out.


Family Fun Day

1. On hot weekends travelling to West Wittering beach by car can be a nightmare. Cruise past all the traffic by using the Salterns Way - a cycle route that follows rural roads and cycle paths and leads you right down to the beach.

 2. Stop off at the shops at West Wittering to pick up picnic goodies and any last minute beach items. There is also a café and beach goods shop in the beach car park.

 3. Cycle into the beach car park. There are some cycle posts at the far end of the car park. Unload your stuff and get on the beach.

 4. Make your day extra special by pre-booking a paddle surfing or windsurfing lesson with X-train.

 5. Build up your strength for the cycle ride home by having tea and scones at The Beach House, West Wittering before heading back up the Salterns Way.
