Wonderful views and so unusual to be able to walk so far out to sea. The street has such history and a significance locally. Tankerton and Whitstable are amazing places.

This spit of sand allows you to walk out into the sea. It is an interesting experience and worth doing on visiting Whitstable but check the tide. best when the tide is almost out.

A gravel bank exposed at low tide. People seem to enjoy walking out on it. A natural phenomenon which looks attractive. Can be dangerous as the tide comes in. Under sea currents can be strong.

A very unusual and amazing experience. Being surrounded by sea. But check the tide times as it is easy to get caught out on the sand bank!!!

At low tide the waters create a sandy pathway known locally as the street. It is a lovely walk out in to the sea and well worth a visit whilst in Whitstable.

A great walk out into the sea, wrap up warm and make sure you walk out with the tide. The water will come in the middle before the end so be safe but do enjoy this great experience.

Brilliant natural bank that goes out into the sea at low tide. Makes you feel like your walking on water! Well worth a stroll.

Well worth the walk out at low tide. We parked opposite the castle, free parking for up to 4 hours then walked down the cliff and out on the sandspit. Well worth visiting, great views of the bay including the wind farm. The tide seems...More

The street is really only a strip of land that at low tide you can walk out on whilst the sea is at both sides of you and as the tide comes in, the strip becomes smaller until it disappears. That's it. It's fun to...More

Excellent question. But of course geography is not square. So although Whitstable is on the Eastern Coast, the town faces north and west as it is on a 'bump' sticking up and out. The sun, variably, sets over the Island of... More
