These beaches can be accessed from the promenade that runs along the top of the seafront and from the Lifeboat Station, but only by foot. They offer great views across to the Witterings and to Selsey Bill on a clear day. The tides on these beaches can be very strong, due to their proximity with the entrance to Chichester Harbour upon which they sit.
Sandy Point sits adjacent to a Nature Reserve with many a rare wild life to be spotted.
Black Point is actually a private beach owned by the Hayling Island Sailing Club, access to which is restricted to members only.
