Beware of the man who works in the toll both. He is rude, sarcastic, obnoxious and presumptuous, with an inflated ego. Thankfully his attempts to be intimidating were unsuccessful. He successfully ruined our weekend spent in Sandwich!

All the whining people on this site need their bumps felt but, thankfully, at least they won’t come here and ruin what is a fantastic day out. There is a toll of £7 to access the beach by car, but motor homes and horse boxes...More

I love this beach, yes it’s £7 to get in, but most beaches you would struggle to park at and have to pay, this is convenient and you can practically park on the beach.. The beach is clean, there were lots of washed up dead...More

I live here and it's very quiet, tidy and tranquil. I often enjoy a nice jog or a walk along the beach - with or without the dogs. It probably isn't the most appealing beach for Vacationers as it is a pebble beach. They also...More
