One of our favourite places along the Sussex/Kent coast whatever the time of year. Great for walking and taking in the sea air, looking for birds and wildlife, beautiful sea, estuary and marsh views. Don't be put off by the ugly drive to the harbour though an industrial estate! Pub on harbour itself eems to be "coming up" and was being refurbished when we last visited.

We had two walks in the reserve and got very lucky with the weather given it was middle of January. Paths were rather muddy in places but great to be out in the fresh air on what feels like a remote seaside place.

Interesting to see the small castle at Camber (I believe you can only get in during summer) and learn about how the geography has changed and how the former bay has filled up with shingle. Pleasant place for dog walking and a long beach as well as the salt lagoons.

Didnt see any wildlife or much else to do but this was in January, maybe I missed something? Kids area, small harbour and public house and a muddy footpath, dog walkers were friendly.

we went for a walk here on Christmas morning - very bracing as the weather was not good but it was good to do a bit of exercise before a big Christmas lunch!

Beautiful wild place, lovely in all weathers apart from driving rain, birds, beaches, friendly people and the skies...
