Dog muck everywhere, on beach, toe paths and road. Not very human friendly let alone children safe :-( such a shame

This is a long pebble beach in a wide sweeping bay, you can find a little sand and mud at low tide. The land behind is a wide flat marshland and it is protected by a very high concrete sea wall which spoils the inland view a little but to the East on a good day you can view the cuspate foreland of Dungeness and to the West the very impressive cliffs of Fairlight. In land on the Marshes are several fresh water and brackish lakes attracting a variety of birds and waders so its a good location for those with a decent pair of binoculars and there is ample parking, for the most part free.

At the far end away from Whinchlesea is a well serviced small "stay & Pay" car park with decent clean WCs and a couple of local shops. Far more interesting to my mind is Whinchlesea itsself, the worlds first town created using modern town planning and the church yard not only has some very impresive flying butteresses but is also the final resting place of Spike Milligan. And its true, his head stone really does say "I told you I was sick" all be it in Gaealic.

If you visit the becah try and take a drive through Iclkesahm to Whinchlsea and Rye, late spring when the apple blossom is out is a great time to do so.

A nice walk with a dog and quite popular for that reason. There is a small cafe nearby and also a pub The Smugglers.
