“Dover Harbour Beach”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Wonderful sights! Dover Castle just to the north, high above the famous White Cliffs. To the west, the French coastline is visable on a good clear day.

And, yes, although the beach area consists of pebbles, for any of those folks so interested in geology, there are hardly no two alike. We have taught our two boys to always observe the wonders of nature and they (and their parents) were stymied by the volume of smooth sea stones with small bore holes evident. Some holes were completely through the stone and up to 5-6mm in diameter. Whatever process created these is a wonder indeed! If anyone knows what caused this, I would like to know.

Dover Beach area is a place to put your feet up and relax or rent a small sailboat and take on the Dover Harbour portion of the mighty English Channel!

“Great for a nice walk”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

This is a very clean area .We stayed across the road at a hotel so it was very handy
Unlike New Zealand beaches that are all sand this beach has pebbles / stones
Always something to view with the ferries coming and going

“Lovely beach”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

Just along from the port is a lovely clean beach. The beach is pebbles but is clean and tidy with easy access onto the beach. Lovely views of Dover castle and the ports watching the ferrys come in and out. Not many eating facilities on the beach front but a view coffee and ice cream vans to buy from.

“A small Oasis”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

What a brilliant beach. Secluded from the wind and bad weather with a very pretty and inviting beach and lovely waters. Plenty of beach to find 'your' spot and the views are fantastic - the white cliffs, the Dover Castle, the Channel, and on a clear day, France!
Coming from Australia, I have high expectations of a good beach, Dover Beach was lovely!
