I have a booking at West Wittering Beach. Is there anything I need to know?



Please be mindful of the government guidelines and any legal travel restrictions when visiting West Wittering Beach.

Whilst this is a large car park it is very busy at peak times, so please book ahead to secure your place. 

The price charged for parking is a flat daily rate, regardless of how long you intend to park, so please book for the full day. If you arrive before your booking starts, the barrier will not open and you may be charged again. 

It is not possible to book multi-day parking in this location in one booking. If you require multiple days please make individual bookings for each date that you require. 

When you arrive
When you arrive at the car park pull up to the barrier, your vehicle registration plate will be automatically read and the barrier will rise. In the unlikely event this fails, there is an assistance button on the payment pillar which is manned at all times.
