Rye Harbour Nature Reserve - Local Dog Walk in Rye, East Sussex

At the end of Harbour Road there is a huge free car park.

You enter the nature reserve here.
Follow the path and after 100 meters you can take the path on the right through the reserve to the beach, This takes around 30 mins. Just before the beach is a little private road. To the right is the old Lifeboat house, which is derelict but worth a visit. If you turn left this takes you back to the river and the car park.

At low tide there are miles and miles of low sand banks which are amazing to walk on.

Walking back to the car park there is a little black hut with a red roof which is just beautiful.

The whole walk takes around an hour.

For the adventurous you can follow the path by the sea all the way to Winchelsea beach and Pett Level (where you can get refreshments at seaside cafes). This must be a around 3 miles walk.

At weekends there can be lots of people there walking their dogs.

Its very well maintained and perfect for wheelchairs, pushchairs and bicycles.

I love this place. If you time it at low tide you will find it magical. There are low tides and there are very low tides, if you can be there when its below a 1 meter you will have a real treat.
