Get active

Not that we are big kids or anything, but we think of our lovely sunshine coast as a giant playground.

The combination of beautiful beach and stunning South Downs opens up a wealth of sports and outdoor activities...

Ease yourself in…

Like the outdoors, but don’t want anything too strenuous?  After all, you are on holiday…

Our beautiful beach is great fun – try rockpooling or go for a swim (while not Mediterranean standards, the sea does warm up a bit in summer!).

We have a lovely 5km-long seafront promenade that is great for an easy walk, scooting – or why not dust off those disco rollerboots that have been hidden for years?!

For those wanting a challenge

iStock_000005836197XSmall cropThe South Downs are fantastic for walking, mountain biking, horse riding, running – you name it!

The Beachy Head marathon is considered one of the UK’s most challenging thanks to our gorgeous hills.

If you’re a beginner, you can choose shorter or easier routes – you don’t have to do the whole South Downs Way.

Ask Carl for distance tips as he regularly runs on the Downs.
