More Information...

This quiet pebble beach is dominated by the white chalk cliffs of the Seven Sisters just to the east. It sits at the mouth of the meandering Cuckmere river. One of the best known views of the beach is looking out over the coastguard cottages towards the Seven Sisters. This row of 4 cottages was built shortly after the foundation of the National Coastguard Service in 1822. However, they are currently under threat from erosion with the cliffs over 30 metres closer than they originally were. Cuckmere Haven is a popular spot for anglers with the river mouth providing rich pickings. The area is also abundant with wildlife. The beach (and backdrop of the cliffs) has been used as a location in numerous films including Harry Potter and Robin Hood.
