Goring Seafront and Beach

The seafront in Goring-by-Sea extends for nearly two miles from George V Avenue in the east to the boundary of Ferring in the west.

To the east, a wide promenade continues for several miles through Worthing to the eastern boundary of the borough at Lancing. To the west, a footpath continues along the top of the beach through Ferring.

The shingle beach offers good bathing at high water. At low tide, up to half a mile of sand and rocks are exposed providing opportunities for walking, exploration of rock pools, paddling and ball games. There are two high tides per day. The time of high and low tide, sunrise and sunset can be found here.


At the bottom of this page, you can enjoy a series of images of Goring-by-Sea beach. In autumn, winter and early spring, sunsets are particularly good. There's also a video shot from a drone.



A row of beach huts runs along the eastern half of the beach from George V Avenue up to Sea Lane Cafe.


A narrow promenade runs along the top of the eastern half of the beach offering a great place for walkers. Cycling is not permitted on the promenade.


Dog owners should note that their pets must be kept on a lead whilst on the promenade.








Between Worthing Sailing Club and the boat ramp at the bottom of Alinora Avenue, dogs are not allowed on the beach between May 1st and September 30th. 


The club house, boat compound and launching ramp for Worthing Sailing Club are a key feature of the beach. The club hosts national as well as local competitions during the summer and also has a thriving windsurfing section. 


Fresh fish, some caught locally, can be purchased from the fisherman's hut by the Alinora Avenue Car Park.


Sea Lane Cafe serves meals, coffee, cakes and ice cream. It is open throughout the year and very popular with residents and visitors. A car park (free for two hours) is right by the cafe. Public toilets are also located here.


To the west of Sea Lane Cafe, a footpath runs along the top of the beach until the Ferring boundary. Walkers will go past fishing boats and equipment on the top of the beach. 


On the horizon, you will be able to see the Rampion Wind Farm about 7-9 miles offshore.


The beach at Goring-by-Sea attracts sailors, jet-ski enthusiasts and wind/kite surfers as well as swimmers. 


Throughout the day, free on-street parking is available but there is a two hour limit in the two off-street car parks. Overnight, there is a restriction on the parking of motor caravans along the south side of Marine Drive and Marine Crescent.
