Bexhill-on-Sea Beach in East Sussex

Bexhill-on-Sea Beach

Bexhill-on-Sea Beach is a traditional seaside resort with a shingle and sand beach, a promenade and a range of facilities. It’s a great spot for families, with crazy golf, shops and cafes nearby.

Due to the extraordinary circumstances we are facing, the RNLI have been working hard to keep patrols on more beaches for longer than usual. To find out which beaches still have lifeguards on duty visit our lifeguarded beaches list page.

Beach information

Stay safe on the beach

  • Wherever possible, swim at a lifeguarded beach. Find your nearest RNLI lifeguarded beach or search on or the Irish Water Safety website.
  • Always read and obey the safety signs, usually found at the entrance to the beach. These will help you avoid potential hazards on the beach and identify the safest areas for swimming.
  • When on a lifeguarded beach, find the red and yellow flags and always swim or bodyboard between them – this area is patrolled by lifeguards.
  • Never swim alone.
  • If you get into trouble, stick your hand in the air and shout for help.
  • If you see someone in difficulty, don't attempt a rescue. Tell a lifeguard, or, if you can't see a lifeguard, call 999 or 112 and ask for the coastguard.
  • For more advice about having fun and staying safe on the beach, see our beach safety advice.

Bexhill’s brand new lifeguard tower opened for the first time this weekend and on Monday, one of our new lifeguards accompanied by her colleague saw a young boy who was struggling beyond the flagged swimming area with his mum trying to keep him afloat. Both lifeguards made swiftly to the pair and were able to bring them safely back to the shore.
