Beachy Head & the South Downs Nature Reserve at South Downs National Park
The Downs around Eastbourne are recognised as an area of outstanding natural beauty. The dramatic 530 feet high cliffs of Beachy Head give stunning views over the Eastbourne and the English Channel.
Walk from the foot of Beachy Head or climb to the top for dramatic views of the famous red and white-stripped lighthouse. Wheelchair users can also enjoy the area by using the accessible Peace Path on Beachy Head.
Why not walk or cycle the South Down's Way. The route stretches for 90 miles between Eastbourne and Winchester, taking in picturesque villages and stunning scenery. It is suitable for walkers, horse riders and mountain bikes.
