Camber Sands Kitesurfing Holiday and Travel Guide

Camber Sands

United Kingdom

Why Visit?

Camber is easily accessible from London and boasts a huge sandy beach, three kite schools and various bars in the town. It is also a good place to learn with shallow shelving beaches and small waves. You can enjoy onshore winds in every direction (aside from NW) within a 15-minute drive.

Wind and Weather

The prevailing wind direction is SW (cross-onshore from the right looking out to sea). During the summer months, we get a thermal sea breeze in the afternoons that can add significantly to the forecast wind speed. The beach works best on any wind containing “S” in it, for example, ESE to WSW.

Getting Around

Having a vehicle will give you the most freedom, parking is free at Broomhill (where the kite zone is). There are also buses hourly and day roaming passes are cheap if you want to explore. You can get the fast train from London to Ashford, train to Rye then bus or taxi to Camber.

Food and Drink

There are various places to suit taste and budget. The Gallivant, which has recently been refurbished, while your budget may not stretch to dining there daily, it is well worth experiencing (They also offer individually themed accommodation) The Owl - gastro-pub food and (also offer accommodation), Rye Bay café; the spot for a sundown beer plus reasonably priced food, Dunes Bar (Beach themed bar with food and drink), KitKat Café which is open during the day and is on the beach plus plenty more!

Nightlife

There are a few pubs and bars around town, but Camber is generally pretty quiet. Rye has more on offer when it comes to bars plus live music at the weekends, and it is only about 3 miles away.

No Wind

You can sunbathe (weather permitting of course!), you can hire an Electric Fat Bike, and cycle around Camber or explore the medieval town in Rye and check out their quirky café. Visit Dungeness or go on the miniature steam railway.

All three schools in Camber offer SUP lessons and hire. Action Watersports in Lydd offers wakeboarding behind a boat, an inflatable aqua park and flyboarding.

Internet

There is 3G in the area, and most of the pubs and bars have WIFI around town.

Accommodation

There are many Airbnb's in the area, as well as Gallivant Hotel, The Owl Pub, Park Resorts (Caravan and Camping) and Pontins. You can also check accommodation in Rye; they have many Airbnb's and hotels to choose from.
