You’ll find all you need for an afternoon on the beach at Kingsdown, a secluded half sand, half shingle beach with plenty of rock pools to explore.

If you’re searching for more excitement than rock pooling and paddling, the beach is a popular local spot for kayaking.

For those seeking even more peace and quiet, the 2.2 mile circular Kingsdown and Walmer walk starts from Walmer Castle, offering the perfect excuse to get away for an hour and soak up even more glorious views across the Channel.

Kingsdown beach is privately owned so please no campers, fires or fishing.
