  • Exploring

Beautiful, wild-feeling cove, accessed by walking along from Pett level. Park in the village of Pett, by the toilets, and walk round till you reach the cove. Water is shallow at either end, with many concealed rock plateaus just under the surface, which makes getting in difficult. Better to go in from the centre of the sweep, where there is a sandy patch and less risk/frustration. You can see the houses perched on the cliffs above and the dramatic cliffs when you look back from the sea.

This is a crowd-sourced map. Abilities vary, and conditions change. Always assess risks for yourself before getting in.

Stay well clear of the base of the cliffs - a large chunk fell when we were there.
