More than 456 species of flowering plants have so far been recorded on the nature reserve, including 27 scarce species and two endangered species, Least Lettuce and Stinking Hawksbeard.
The Beach Reserve is recognised as having one of the finest examples of coastal shingle vegetation in the country. Particularly in late May and June the beach is transformed by a colourful array of flowers, the striking Sea Kale, and Viper's Bugloss, the delicate Yellow Horned-poppy, Sea Pea and Sea Campion to name only a few.
Along the river's edge there is a good example of intertidal saltmarsh vegetation and going inland a little, the gravel pits and drainage dykes provide more variety in the form of waterside and aquatic plant life. Around Camber Castle there are the unique ancient shingle ridges that have a very specialised flora.
