Alices Pipe - looking west.
From Pevensey Bay, follow Coast Rd heading east towards Norman’s Bay.
Heading out of Pevensey Bay, the beachfront bungalows on the right hand side of Coast Road come to an end on the opposite side of the road to Normans Bay Camping and Caravanning Club Site (BN24 6PR) on the left. Just as the road curves inland towards the level crossing, take the right turning towards Normans Bay Caravan Park, and follow the road adjacent to the beach past several more houses until the beach opens out on the right of the road directly opposite Wallers Haven sluice gates on the left of the road. Alice's Pipe is the large outlet pipe visible at low tide, and identifiable at high tide by the red upright pipe.
