The Pound
The Pound is located to the western end of Eastbourne’s shingle beach. The rockpools cover 5 ha and at low tide are 0-1m deep.
Freshwater springs keep the visibility good and the thin sandstone reef offshore shelters the Pound. The site is enhanced by the shingle specialist plants that grow there.

Meeting Point: ‘The Kiosk’ – small café on corner of Duke’s Drive, near St. Bede’s School.
