Beautiful views across the Estuary. Plenty of seating. A couple of cafes with ice cream & the fabulous Marine Hotel. Not far from the High Street with numerous cafes & tea rooms. A good place to sit & stare.

Thanks for that. We took a chance and went anyway. Although not officially allowed after May 1st everyone was letting dogs run lose and all other dogs were very friendly to our nervous little soul. Lovely walk to Whitstable... More
