What Are The Best Dog Walks In East Sussex?

Camber Sands

Featuring dog walking around the UK

Beautiful walks along coastal routes and sandy beaches

Camber Sands is renowned for dog walking, it’s long 5 miles, and more, a stretch of glorious sandy beaches, are quite remarkable in Sussex, as the majority of Sussex beaches are famed for being pebbly and with the groin coastal engineering system, long, narrow structures built out into the water from beaches helping to prevent beach erosion.

Sussex is situated on the English coast due south from London, and Camber Sands sited 2 miles from the quaint fortified medieval town of Rye, in East Sussex, a Cinque port town with the English Channel separating the English coast from France. On a clear day, one can see the French coastline.

The joy of visiting Camber Sands is that dog walking on the beach is available all year round with the only restriction that dogs must be kept on leads during the summer period, 1 May through to 31 September 2020.

Payable car parking is not difficult, and access to the beach is at the main entrance which is fairly flat walking down sandy natural paths to the beach, being incredibly flat and exposed when tides go out, as the above picture featured picture. The beach closes at 8 pm.

The tides go out and come in quickly causing some visitors to get into trouble with soft sand experienced underfoot, so it’s important to take heed to designated signs and advice as to the best parts of the beach for safe swimming and times of tides. If wanting to spend just a couple of hours on the beach then it’s best to let the tide start to go out so the sand starts drying out, picking two or three hours after high tide can be best. Tide information is available on most meteorological websites.

Vets are available in case of pet emergencies close by at Rye, part of the Cinque Ports Care, veterinary group.

To get the very best out of a special day trip, do plan in advance.

  • Pre-book your car park space if necessary
  • Check all local social media before setting out including if there are traffic build-ups in the area so you are not wasting time sitting in a hot car
  • Check tide times for the best times to be on the beach. We recommend two hours after high tide allows the tide to be going out, sand and shingle drying out and gives more space on the beach.
  • Remember to buy sun creams for you and your pet before its too hot weather, apply before leaving home
  • Ensure your dog has ventilated space in your vehicle and also sunshades protecting them

Beach doggie tips to remember –

  • To take lots (more than usual) of fresh water and a collapsible bowl for your thirsty dog. Seawater is salty and will make your dog even more thirsty.
  • Have old towels to dry your dog if they’ve been swimming. Provide them with towels to sit on rather than the sand, and towels help to clean off the sand before going home!
  • A sun canopy or umbrella shade is important, not just for you, but also for your dog who can catch sunburn as much as you can.
  • You may need to use a short and/or long dog lead during restriction times, and take a dog muzzle if you prefer your dog to wear one on busier beaches. They can act out character in new, unknown places often feeling anxious.
  • Please remember to take your rubbish home with you. That includes dog poop which is your responsibility to clean up at all times. Read our blog about beach dog poop.
