WALK DESCRIPTION:

DISTANCE: 8.12 miles (13kms) walk was recorded by MapMyWalk App on my android mobile.  (view walk here)

Walked from Terminus Road in Eastbourne town centre towards seafront and around the back of the Grand Hotel (which we love) so we could walk past the front, before heading down to the South Downs Way promenade, via the bandstand and towards the Eastbourne Pier for an investigative look at the burnt down section, and then headed east along the coastline to Pevensey Bay and Castle.

WHERE TO GET THE WALK DETAILS

I checked the SWC Walk 66 – Eastbourne to Hastings, via Pevensey, Cooden Beach and Bexhill for directions, took note of,  and checked google maps for tricky bits, and printed the map, for reference on the walk.  This is an easy, flat walk, with some shingle walking for approx. 1.5 miles  heading into Pevensey Bay.
