Waited for low tide and was rewarded with a small section of this wreck. You are able to walk up to it to get the idea of its size. The rudder is obvious, but the shape of the wreck varies according to tides.There are information...More

Said to have eventually sunk in the sinking sand, after having run aground after battling a huge storm off Eastbourne and sustaining damage, the Amsterdam is said to have gone down with silver bullion aboard. There are only a few times a year when the...More

At certain low, low tides you can see this amazing wreck. Stand in the middle of it and you'll get a feel for the exact size The Amsterdam actually was. Apparently some interesting things have been found under the sand around the wreck and I've...More

Where was it? :) The tide was wrong, so there was nothing else to see than 'waves'. One could enjoy that, but to see the wreck, you must have a very low tide. VERY low ...

Was exciting to see something hundreds of years old that's only visible sometimes. Finally found a time of low low tide when we were free to go view. Get on top of the hastings council tide timetables before you go...you want low tide to be...More

A wonderful chance to walk around a 250 year old wreck, a replica of which sits in Amsterdam harbour. It can only be seen when the tide is far out so check before you travel.

The Amsterdam is a shipwreck that is visible on the beach. Some of its lost cargo is in the shipwreck museum near to East Hill funicular railway.

Great to see something with so much history behind it, highly recommend a trip to the wreck museum first to learn about The Amsterdam and it will make it so much more worthwhile.

If you want to take a walk to the ship wreck, check the tides first. You will only see this on a very low tide. You can see the top of the boat and must use your imagination when walking round. But quite amazing.

I managed to find this wreck on my own after a while of `searching. Initially it looks like rocks or sticks washed on the beach when the tide is really low. The bottom part of the ship was just above water during the best time...More
