East Head (NT)

Coast Guard Lane, WEST WITTERING, PO20 8AJ

Visit one of the last surviving pieces of natural coastline in West Sussex. East Head is an example of the nationally rare and fragile, yet dynamic, sand-dune habitat. Explore East Head's distinct habitats - shingle, sandy beach and dunes that graduate into salt-marsh. Maritime plants, such as the tough-leaved sea holly and sea bindweed, grow through the sand. In summer, they're at their vibrant, colourful best. Look too for the distinctive marram grass, which needs the cover of the shifting sands to grow.
