Overstrand Beach

Overstrand has a very large sandy beach at low tide and is backed by grassy cliffs. It's an ideal beach for swimming and for families with children. When the tide retreats there are shallow sandy pools for paddling and playing in.

Overstrand Beach

Overstrand is a great beach for fossil collecting, a variety of fossils including sea urchins and Molluscs are washed out of the chalk areas that are exposed at low tide. The best place to look is along the foreshore.

If you get bored with the beach there's plenty of coast and clifftop walks.

Beach Facilities

There is a café on the cliff above the beach which offers amazing views out to sea. In the nearby village of Overstrand there are a couple of shops, two hotels and a pub.

Parking

There is a car park on the cliffs above the beach in Pauls Lane.
