Watersports and summertime, what could go more hand in hand? We are extremely lucky here in Kent to have a beautiful coastline forming the majority of our county. From the wilderness of Dungeness to the tip of Broadstairs in Thanet and up to the outskirts of London in Dartford.

The King Charles III England Coast Path provides the perfect combination of watersports and walking. This National Trail is a stunning walking route in Kent where you can explore areas of coastline, but also hop off the route and get on the water if you wish!

It’s no surprise that the southern coastline is more attractive, with long stretches of beaches, especially in Greatstone, Hythe, Folkestone, Dover and Deal. Not forgetting the little gems on the northern coast too like Whitstable, Tankerton, Minnis Bay, Margate, and the stunning bays of Kingsgate and Botany Bay.

With such a selection, there are quite a few opportunities to get wet and try out some watersports this summer. We have hand picked some clubs/hire companies for you to choose from, so let’s get started!
