Gorgeous beach, just check the tides first!

My kids love this beach. It is small, but has lots of interesting things to explore, plus a huge expanse of sand to play on at low tide. Just check the tide times before you go... read more

No mention of a toll to pay until you are at the end of the road and how expensive. They don't want visitors.

My kids love this beach. It is small, but has lots of interesting things to explore, plus a huge expanse of sand to play on at low tide. Just check the tide times before you go, as at high tide there isn't a beach at all.

Sat at sunny sands and just watched the tide come up over the rocks. It was just a bit breezy the day I went but I still enjoyed.

We thankfully got to the beach at a time when the tide was going out !!!! We got our own tunnel and relaxed, had a great picnic. We weren't close to the sea so it was just great. I warn you that there is an awful smell if you sit near the toilets !!!! Make sure you check the tide... More

What a fabulous beach. So much to see. Marvellous above, disused Second World War buildings scattered hither and thinner. Have they found all the buried gold bars?. Some homage to the old days with local fish markets and cockle Nd whelk stalls. Good for all ages, play fountains for the kids and benches and views for the old. Folkestone is... More

The beach is clean, accessible for dogs too, out of season. A lovely spot. There are nearby restaurants and seafood stall. I'd love to return in Summer

In summer, perhaps the best tourist in Kent - soft sand washed clean by a daily, all-enveloping tide. But in winter, when the tourists are gone and the dogs are allowed back on, it is Heaven for canines and canine lovers. Great views, sharp, enlivening wind, happy dogs, friendly owners and plenty of nearby parking

Sand, sand and more sand! What more could you ask for?! What's also super about this beach, are the nooks the children can play in. The tunnels are great fun, whilst also providing some shelter from either sun, wind and/or rain.

My partner and I went here on the way home from having a fantastic meal at Don Giovanni's in the town. It was around 10.30pm there wasn't a soul around. It was very clean and pretty with all of the lights! One of our favourite places in the evening.

Small beach - soft sand and would be great for kids. If you enjoy long walks on beaches, this is not it.
