Ten minutes’ drive from The George lies Camber Sands, the longest stretch of sandy beach in East Sussex. Camber Sands is one of the kitesurfing and windsurfing meccas in the country. The “blue flag” beach is over 2 miles long and half-a-mile wide at low tide. Camber Sands embraces a site of special scientific interest (SSSI) and nature conservation importance. There is a footpath from Rye to Camber Sands which takes approximately 40 minutes.
