The clocks may have changed, but sunbathing isn’t yet on the UK’s weather forecast.

When spring hits in earnest, however, Camber Sands looks like your best bet for a balmy day at the beach.

According to a new study by Parkdean, the East Sussex spot gets warmest quickest in spring, hitting average highs of 19°C throughout the season.

Beating Dungeness Beach in Kent and Studland Bay in Dorset by 1°C to take first place, Camber Sands offers the chance to catch some rays and so much more.

With golden sand and plenty for all the family to do, it’s a perfect Easter holiday day out.

Plus, you may even end up spotting a celeb or two while you’re there, as Tom and Giovanna Fletcher, Lisa Faulkner and John Torode have all been spotted there in recent years, and it’s served as a filming location for TV shows like Doctor Who and Inbetweeners.

How to get to Camber Sands

Camber Sands is just two hours away from London by car, but it’s often quicker to travel from the capital by car.

The nearest station is Rye, which you can get to from London St Pancras with a change at Ashford International. The journey takes just over an hour, and an Advance Single ticket costs from £18.10 each way.

Once you’re at Rye, you’ll then need to get a bus or walk to the beach. If you’re walking, it’ll take you about an hour, while the 102 Wave bus goes from the station to Camber Sands in around 20 minutes.

Things to do at Camber Sands

There are plenty of facilities for a relaxing day of soaking up the sun at Camber Sands, from cafes, ice cream sellers and fish and chip shops, as well as toilets and parking.

The five-mile stretch of beach is home to the only sand dune system in East Sussex, to the east of the the River Rother estuary, with the best spot for sunbathing close by.

Camber Sands is also a popular location for kitesurfing at windsurfing, and you can hire equipment and take courses via Rye Watersports or The Kitesurf Centre if you’re feeling adventurous.

Alternatively, in case classic seaside pursuits aren’t your thing, why not explore the cobbled streets and historic buildings of Rye, play a round at one of the many nearby golf courses, or take a RIB seal safari to get a look at the native wildlife.
