I love riding my bike down here and then sitting taking in the views or looking in the rockpools at low rice. There are also great views of deal and over to ramsgate from the top of the stairs.

A lovely shale beach in a secluded area. Get a thick blanket, settle down and look out to sea, maybe think how long it would take you to swim to France in the distance! Once you've done that, time for a drinky at the Zetland...More

A lovely walk, not many people ideal for sitting and looking at the sea without disturbance. Dog friendly, good swimming between the groins. Parking not too far away. Spoilt by fishermen leaving their rubbish on the beach, plenty of bins around

I love this beach. So does my dog! Wear swim shoes so you can have pain-free feet when going for a swim. This beach is like my childhood seaside holidays. It is free from development and has a pretty nature reserve. It was very quiet...More

Feels like a private beech with wonderful pubs in walking distance. The water is clean and the rock pooling is fun!
