West Wittering and East Head
The pretty village of West Wittering has lovely coastal footpaths to try. You can park at the beach car park and then follow paths along the beach and onto the National Trust owned East Head. Here you can stroll through shingle, sandy beach and a delightful sand dune habitat. The area is great for wildlife with skylarks, ringed plover and common sealsáto look out for. There's also lots of pretty wildflowers and great views over Chichester Harbour to Hayling Island.
After exploring the dunes you can head north along the New Lipchis Way to West Itchenor. It's about a 4 mile walk along a pretty coast path with lovely views all the way.
If you would like to extend your walk you could catch the ferry from West Itchenor to Bosham and then explore Chichester Harbour and Thorney Island. You could also continue east along the New Lipchis Way to Birdham where you can visit Chichester Marina. Heading south east takes you to East Wittering, Bracklesham Bay and the Medmerry RSPB Nature Reserve, where there are some excellent wildlife spotting opportunites.
