Frequently asked questions

Everything you need to know before your Widewater Sauna experience. If there are further questions please contact us at or give us a bell on  0786 7577 884

What do I need to bring?

Travel light and if possible arrive Sauna ready. Please come having recently showered.  Bring your swimwear, two towels: one for sitting on in the sauna for hygiene reasons and one for drying off, a water bottle to rehydrate during sessions, Beach Shoes/flip flops are suggested as we're on a pebble beach and a bathrobe/swimrobe if you wish.  Day wear or underwear is not permitted in the sauna.

Please Do Not bring your own products and oils, for health and safety reasons, these can not be used in our Sauna, as they may react to the heat and release toxins, or create slippery surfaces. 

Changing room space is limited and outdoorsy so come as ready as you can.

Are children allowed?

For health and safety reasons, in line with our insurance providers, we regret that under 16’s are not allowed in the saunas or plunge pools.

Adverse weather conditions

We will close during adverse weather conditions such as gail force winds, and in the case of a major storm, otherwise we are open in all weathers. Having a sauna in the rain, sleet and snow is the most invigorating thing! We can’t give refunds or credits for bad weather if we deem it safe to be open.

Sauna Etiquette 

Please behave in a respectful manner to fellow sauna attendees and abide by the rules and regulations of Widewater Sauna.

The sauna is a democratic space.  If anyone is disturbing your enjoyment of the sauna please talk to that person and agree with each other on a mutually agreeable level of behaviour, thank you.

No alcohol or smoking or vaping is allowed onsite.

Customers may not use their own products in the sauna due to certain products being harmful and dangerous in the saunas.

No Nudity in community sauna

How many people does the sauna hold?

For community sessions we open it up to six people. For private hires we open it to seven people

How to get there?

Head to Widewater nature reserve WEST car park and we are just at the end of that row of beach huts less than 50 yards from the west beach carpark. There are bike racks by the kiosk or it's a super lovely walk from Shoreham or Worthing.  The 700 Coastliner runs along Brighton Road and the stop is The Broadway - there's a walk way straight across the lagoon to the beach where we are.

The address: Widewater Lagoon, Lancing, BN15 8LJ
