Fairlight glen beach

Hi all, thinking of visiting fairlight glen beach this summer. Can anyone add info of:
Where to park?
Whats the best route down to beach?
How difficult is it to get to and from?
Does it get very busy?
Are you planning to attend?

Are the any other good beaches in the kent and East Sussex areas?

Any information you could share would be great.

Feel free to message me if you are planning a visit anywhere in kent and East Sussex and you would like some nude company.

Is this a good topic?:

I take the train and walk

I take the train and walk from Hastings but there is parking I believe at Hastings Country Park Fairlight Rd Picnic site.You then need to walk down to the beach - best use Google Earth beforehand I think.It's not the easiest of walks.Fairlight is never really busy which is why it is so fantastic.. however there are reasons it isnt busy, accessability being one of them, high tides and therefore limited beach space and the general ruggedness put a lot of people off. I first went over forty years ago then had a gap of ten years and have been every summer since.

It's nice out today - I think I'll leave it out

Thanks for the reply, how far

Thanks for the reply, how far/long is the walk from Hastings as that might be an option for me too?
Do you use any other beaches in the area? I have read there may be a couple, birling gap and Norman’s bay but information is a bit hit and miss as to whether they are still naturist or not?
I’ve been to camber sands in the dunes and there were a couple of others up there but can’t use the main beach as far as I know?
Any more info on kent and East Sussex beaches from anyone would be great please

The walk from Hastings is

The walk from Hastings is about 5 miles with some very step steps up and down which are officially closed but actually accessible.. and that of course means five miles back :)
I've never used either of the other beaches but by strange co incidence used to go to Norman's Bay as a kid on Sunday School holidays! By another strange co incidence my Grandmother lived in Littlehampton very near Climping beach which i was never allowed to go to...it wasn't until 30 years later I found it was used by Nudists.

It's nice out today - I think I'll leave it out

It's a couple of years since

It's a couple of years since I've been to Fairlight, and I did park at the country park and walked down. I think there is a bus route along there from Hastings - should be quicker and less taxing than walking! It is quite a way down, and feels even further when walking back up, but it's worth it. I endorse the previous comments about the reasons why it isn't often busy!
There is indeed a nudist section on the beach at Norman's Bay, but it's very exposed, and comprised of large stones. On the one occasion I have visited (last year) there were few people there. But it's always nice to get the clothes off and feel the sun and air all over, wherever you are!
I'm sure that Birling Gap is also used by naturists, but I haven't been, so can't advise.
Enjoy whichever beach(es) you do visit!

Thanks for the information, I

Thanks for the information, I really want to try somewhere new but some of the information on the internet is so out of date you never know if you turn up somewhere and it’s a waste of time!
I’ll be going to Abbott’s cliff Folkestone as I’ve been before so know that’s good for nudists.
Tried camber sands but very quiet and have to stick to the dunes so can’t swim!
Anywhere anyone can definitely say is a nude beach will be great with me.
I may make the trip to fairlight but from what people have said it’s a bit of a trek but may try one day

Hi, I used to live in Hythe,

Hi, I used to live in Hythe, sorry 15 years ago now, but I liked to go to the end of Sandwich Bay where a number of people could be found. The only problem used to be the golfers who moved their club down to that end of the beach and then used to complain about the naturists. However, with the new legislation they should no longer be able to do that.

Hi thanks for the information

Hi thanks for the information, I have seen some information on the internet regarding sandwich bay seems a possible place to visit. I have read they have put in a toll road to try to put off naturists from visiting!

There has always been a road

There has always been a road onto the Sandwich Bay Estate, but I used to approach from the Deal end driving through the golf course. The toll road at that end of the estate was never manned so I could get there without paying then turn right and at the seafront turn left then drive as far down as I could and park at the end by the golf course gate. This way I also avoided the warden who used to check all the cars in the car parks for parking tickets. It is then about a 20 minute walk to the naturists. Good luck. When you do go let me know how you got on.

Lovely thanks for the advice

Lovely thanks for the advice perfect with directions too, can’t get that information on the internet. This is the sort of thing we should all share on here to give us all easier nudist time.

Sorry, I meant to say at the

Sorry, I meant to say at the start that there has always been a toll on the road from Sandwich but messsed I it up. You might also like to try Abbott's Cliff at Folkestone which can either be accessed from the Warren at Folkestone or from Samphire Hoe at Dover. It is not though the greatest beach, mainly consisting of pebbles, but a walk from the Folkestone end can be done naked.

Hi there have been going to

Hi there have been going to fairlight for years all the information about fairlight I agree with its somewhat of a trek but so worth it I think. My problem is being going for years there but I had a fall not at going to fairlight but near my home I hurt my knee not broken but torn ligaments and badly bruised and back problems so I’ve been unable last year to get there steep hills painful for me . I tried this year but also painful missing fairlight like mad. Hopefully a vist soon
