Sussex – England
\\\ Dog Walks
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, 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.
One can spend all day here with your pooch and see few visitors during autumn, winter and spring months and riding of horses is allowed with some time restrictions during summer. Visit South East England provides more information.
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 8pm.
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 go out so the sand dries out, picking low tide times can be best.
The RNLI have a website with helpful advice to remind yourself about sea safety and their nearest lifeboat positioned at nearby Hastings.
Vets are available in case of pet emergencies close by at Rye, part of the Cinque Ports Care, veterinary group.
If your staying in the area, then Sykes Holidays holiday cottages rental lets offer both a Camber Sands location and quaint centuries-old period homes situated in Rye town becoming a perfect location for both beach and sightseeing Sussex holidays.
Biggest doggie tips are to remember to take lots of fresh water and collapsible bowl for your thirsty dog and old towels to clean off the sand before going home!
