Beachy Head

9.2/10

Beachy Head (prevedeno s engleskog: Glava plaže) je poznati završetak britanske obale u La Manchu. Koji se prostire kod Eastbourna u Grofoviji East Sussex.

Karakteristika

To je niz vapnenačkih klifova, kojim završavaju brda South Downsa.

Najviša točka Beachy Heada uzdiže se 162 metara iznad razine mora, to je najviši vapnenački britanski klif.

Glavni razlog za popularnost Beachy Heada je prekrasan panoramski pogled koji se pruža s vrha klifa. Kad se okrene prema istoku vide se plaže i grad Eastbourne, a iza njega Pevensey i Hastings, a za izuzetno jasnih dana vidi se sve do rta Dungeness u Kentu, gotovo 65 km u daljinu.

Gledajući na zapad, može se vidjeti čak i dalje - do 112 km, - Brighton, i sve tamo do Chichestera u West Sussexu. Po vrlo jasnom danu mogu se vidjeti i konture Otoka Wight.

Južni klifovi su puno izloženiji velikim olujama sa jugozapada. Tu je erozija najveća, svojevremeno je postojala i izolirana grupa klifova zvana Sedam Charlesa (Seven Charleses), posljednjeg je progutalo more 1875.

In the opening sequence of The Living Daylights (1987) a smoke-filled, burning, explosive-laden Land Rover flies off a cliff scripted as Gibraltar, but filmed at Beachy Head, with James Bond inside.
