The South East England / Sussex region
Pagham beach is midway between the Victorian resort of Bognor Regis and the fishing town of Selsy; Bognor having been registered as having the most hours of sunshine in England. Once you turn off the A27 and head towards Pagham you seem to travel back in time to when British beach holidays were in vogue. The beach is seldom crowded, if you can call 20-30 people in a 100 yard stretch - crowded! Having direct beach access, it feels almost as though you have your own private beach. Pagham has a few shops, pubs, restaurants and take-aways. A small amusement arcade for the younger children to spend their pennies (focuses on 'old-time' amusement arcade machines). There is an active sailing club with the club house just 20 houses away. Pagham harbour, is aglorious wetland area and is just a few minutes walk along the beach. It is home to many coastal birds and during the winter months a bird hide is open use by those wishing to watch the many waders and the odd seal.
The Bognor Regis / Pagham area
Pagham is close to Bognor Regis for all your victorian seaside delights, Chichester for city shopping, culture and entertainment, Portsmouth with its navel base and viewing tower is a short drive away and glorious Goodwood is an easy day out be it for the horse racing, motor racing or beautiful Goodwood House. Fontwell racecourse is also close by. Being a tourist area there are also many other attractions and ideas for days out.

We came here in March, having hoped at the time of booking it would be spring and we'd have a sunny weekend on the beach. In the event, it was still mid-winter with remnants of snow on the South Downs and wind and rain on the coast. But we still had a fantastic weekend because this place is just so nice - as described, cosy and clean, with a lovely welcoming atmosphere. If anything, the interior is nicer than it looks in the photos, and the view of the sea is just amazing. You get the feeling the owners really want you to enjoy your stay at Moonshine. If you go with realistic expectations - this is the South Coast of England, not the Italian riviera; it is a little chalet on the beach, not a palace - I can't see how you could be disappointed.
