Pevensey Bay is a small seaside resort with very good amenities and facilities. It’s well known with water sports fans and for some fine 1900s buildings characteristic of quaint Sussex villages. It is home to two churches, St Wilfrid's Church and Holy Rood Catholic Church, and well-respected sailing club, the Pevensey Bay Sailing Club. Yachtbuilder Phil Morrison is counted amongst its members.
Next to the long shingle beach are the Pevensey Levels, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), home to some rare plants and wildlife, including the lesser spotted fen raft spider. Pevensey Bay is well connected to the East Coastway railway link with routes to Eastbourne and Hastings. Places of historic interest include the English Heritage managed Camber Castle and Martello Towers. It’s nice and close to Hastings, Rye and Eastbourne for shops and further local places of interest.
