Known also as "Broomhill Sands", Camber Sands is a 7 blue flags huge shallow sandy beach reputed to be the finest in the South-East.It works about 3 hours either side of low water complete with the periodic lagoons. After this the sea is onto the groins and it is not advisable to kitesurf.At low tide there's a long walk to the water, but conditions are fantastic for speedsurfers .The beach works in W, SW, S, SE and E. Parking and kitesurfing is at the Jury's gap car park at the end only.

Trip from town:snap
• Public transport: get a train to Rye, Sussex station. Come out of the station and in front of you is some bus stops. You need to get the 711 bus heading to Lydd / Folkestone . That'll take you through Camber, it's only about 3 miles.
• From Hastings: head out on the coast road, the A259 to Rye and pretty much follow the signs from there.
• From London: M20 is my choice. Come off at junction 10 and follow the signs for the A2070 to Brenzett or Lydd. When you get to the Brenzett roundabout with the Total garage go straight on for a few miles until you come to the left turning for Camber.
launching of kites is only allowed in the designated area at the eastern end of the beach near the Jury's Gap car park.
