Birling Gap beach

Birling Gap Beach sits between two of southern England’s hottest resort beaches, Brighton and Eastbourne. But visit this beach, and you’ll feel world’s away from civilization. It’s the longest stretch of undeveloped beach on England’s southern coastline, with unique rock-surrounded tidal pools and pebbly sand. The white chalk cliffs are a ideal for fossil hunting, but be aware of where you wander, because some areas of Birling Gap are open to nudists. These areas are located west of the access staircase from the cliffs.
