Nice beach here, not too busy but certainly not one of the quietest. Lovely beach huts. Saw some people crabbing. When the tide is high there isn’t really any beach left. Nice park just opposite too and football field.

Lovely sandy beach with free parking along the approach road and more pay and display parking in the Minis pub car park. Mainly a beach not to much else there apart from a couple of cafes and an ice cream parlour. Really nice.

This has got to be one of the best places to see a summer sunset in Kent on a clear summer evening. Try it one evening and I’m sure you will not be disappointed.
