Pevensey Bay (Centre), looking east.
To access the main beach at Pevensey Bay, there are several places to park throughout the village. The most central car park is the Sea Road Car Park (BN24 6EJ) which is signposted from the centre of the village and accessed via Sea Road which runs between the Beach Tavern and The Bay Hotel in the centre of the village. Instead of following the road around to the right to pass through the village, continue straight on towards the sea to enter the Sea Road Car Park.
Alternatively the North Road car park (directly in front of Anglers Den, BN24 6AY) is a FREE CAR PARK, and is a two minute walk to the beach.
The Beach in Pevensey Bay can also be accessed via a number of roads which lead from Eastbourne Road towards the beach, namely Western Road, Leyland Rd and Val Princeps Rd.
