It's simple to reach Camber Sands, in East Sussex, by train. Simply hop on a train to Rye (Sussex) station and then it's just a long way from the railway station - but we've included it as it's a smashing walk and takes you away from the usual south coast crowds. Do look at local Ordnance Survey maps to find footapths rather than following the roads. There are frequent buses on Summer weekend days - do check the local operators for details..
