Where is Birling Gap Beach?

East Sussex / East Dean

From Eastbourne. take the A259. At East Dean. take the B37. A metal staircase allows access to the beach. however the base of the cliffs can be dangerous due to rock falls.

We use a simple colour coded key to display the amount of cottages nearby, the below shows the three different colours and the number range for each one from green through to red.
