A nice enough beach, with many shells and good views over to Herne Bay and Whitstable, but the experience is made considerably less pleasant by the necessity to walk below the high-water line for a stretch past the Leysdown caravan park. It is then necessary...More

Nice views, great to walk between coastal park and warden point cliffs along the beach with ebbing tide, surprisingly clean, you see little crabs and shells so it's great for kids to explore
