USING SEAFORD BEACH

Please use and share the beach responsively, maintain social distancing and consider if your activity might put people, including yourself and frontline responders, at risk.

We encourage swimmers to:

We encourage anglers to:

  • Read the Safe Swimming & Angling off Seaford Beach Leaflet
  • Avoid fishing where swimmers are already in the water
  • Be aware of others on the beach and especially behind you when casting
  • Dispose of used materials such as lines and hooks in the dedicated ‘pipe’ recycling bins

Paddle boarders and canoeists are strongly advised to wear a life jacket, check windspeeds and currents and let someone know before you head out.

People using Windsurf boards,jet skis or power boats should travel slowly from the beach to beyond the yellow buoys and avoid damaging them by always staying well clear.

If you get into trouble call 999 and ask for the Coastguard who will come to your aid.

Please dispose of all litter responsibly, particularly glass, by taking it home with you.

PUBLIC TOILETS

The public toilets in Seaford are now open approximately 7am – 8pm with regular cleaning. These facilities are located below –

Seafront – 

The Buckle Car Park

The Salts

Martello Toilets

Town –

South Street

Place Lane

There are no toilets in the South Hill Barn area until further notice as there is no ability to comply with the national guidance at this present time.

 

LITTER

All litter must be taken home – where there are litter bins in an area you are visiting, this is for small items only and not for tied bags following an all-day visit. If there are no litter bins in the area you are visiting, this is because this area does not have litter removal services and you must take all items home with you.

 

PARKING

There are many places to park in the town at various locations, this includes along the beach and at beauty spots. Please be respectful when using parking facilities to ensure space for others and if a car park facility is full ensure to assess access requirements before parking in front of residential properties or other facilities.

 

AWARENESS OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS

Many people in the town and visitors like to partake in the walk to view the Seven Sisters, Seaford Head Nature Reserve and Cuckmere Valley. Please always be aware of your surroundings; those using the Vanguard Way (the footpath running parallel to the cliff line) must remain at least five metres from the cliff edge and follow all other cliff safety guidance found here

Please also remember that the Vanguard Way is adjacent to a golf course used seven days a week, so to be mindful of sticking to designated footpaths.

When using the seafront, please also be aware that a significant amount of the promenade operates a Share With Care scheme, so welcomes both pedestrians and cyclists. Please therefore be careful of each other, in particular with more people changing positioning and pace more suddenly now to try and observe social distancing. Dog owners should also note that from 1st May certain areas of the seafront become off limit for dogs until October. Details can be found here.

Please also remain aware when in the town centre and taking steps to allow social distancing, such as stepping off the pavement or crossing over the road for example, or allowing distance when queuing to enter a shop – think about what is around you and make sure you’re not placing yourself or others at greater risk.
