Middle Brighton Beach is the home of the Brighton Life Saving Club, which was formed in 1917. Unlike its boat shed lined neighbour (Dendy Street), Middle Brighton has a seawall and promenade running the length of the 500 m long beach. The beach is backed by The Esplanade, with a large car park next to the lifesaving club at the southern end of the beach.The beach is bordered by rock flats and reefs at each end. In addition, a groyne has been built across the northern end, while the seawall and low grassy bluffs back the beach. The beach tends to widen to the north, while the surf zone alternates between the reefs and an irregular, shallow, usually attached bar.

Swimming

It's best to go a little north of the club house, away from the reefs. However, stay in the patrolled area.

Surfing

During strong south-west winds and waves, there are waves over the scattered reefs and bar.

Fishing

The northern groyne offers the best access to deeper water and the adjoining reefs.

General

A very accessible patrolled beach right next to the main road, with a promenade running the length of the beach. Best bathing is toward the centre, away from the rocks and reefs at each end.
