A very nice beach and promenade
Sep 2021
Pulled in for a bike ride along the Promenade and Marina and I have to say that this seafront has been improved vastly since I last visited.
If Dover District Council and the Harbour Board continue with their improvements, then Dover will become the 'little gem' I always thought it was?

Amazingly clean and a lovely place to spend some family time
Aug 2021 • Family
We really enjoyed this beach. We were here for a couple of hours most days for a week with a picnic blanket, reading and watching the view. My 11 year tends to be a bit nervous when swimming in the sea, but wasn’t at all nervous here. She said it felt really safe so she wasn’t worried, and the water was very clean. My teenager also enjoyed the beach and the swimming.

At first my younger child thought she wouldn’t like the beach as it wasn’t sand - but ended up saying that she liked it much more than expected. Not least because she and everything we owned wasn’t covered in sand. Beach shoes are very recommended though - a fact quickly discovered when they were forgotten one day.

We looked for different stones - prettiest (quite a few have quartz hiding in them), the one that made the best fidget toy, flat ones for skimming, etc.

We took lots of walks along the seafront which were nice. We would have loved to have rented a paddle board, but sadly the Dover Water Sports shop was closed - apparently it has moved location for the pandemic. We still had fun though.

Great to sit in the sun and rest after the castle exertions, then crosss the road and have a refreshing coffee

Worth the stop

Great place to walk the paved walkways and walk out the pier. The beach is not really a place to spend the day as it is small rocks to sit or lie on. But is you want to swim laps or take a quick did in the English Channel this is the spot

not my favourite uk beach but worth a visit
Aug 2020
in terms of a day at the beach, dover definitely isn't my favourite place i've been to and it does tend to get quite congested with people. however, this doesn't mean it's by any means a bad beach - i have a fond memory of my partner and i running into town to buy cheap swimsuits and towels to make the most of the summer weather when we were unprepared. there are also toilets (disabled access too) along the seafront which is always good to know!

Dog Poo Hell

Went for a walk along Dover Seafront today. What a lovely place but..... we had to dodge 10, yes I counted them, 10 piles of dog poo.
What is wrong with people?
It is disgusting

Lovely new pier
Sep 2020 • Solo
Lovely long improved seafront to walk along and some good well marked areas of beach and places to gain a snacking . New long pier stretching out into the sea to walk along, with some seating. Great new additions to a lovely location

Perfect Post Covid Getaway
Aug 2020 • Family
If it’s a large beach, with lots of shops, arcades, rides and fish and chips kiosks, then this is not the place for you. Dover Beachfront is small, quiet and very pleasant. It’s a pebble beach. There is one ice-cream place that serves simple food too. And no bars. There is a hotel opposite the beach where you can get a drink. And a small, simple pier. It’s the perfect place for a calm and quiet day by the water. We loved it!

Great beach - pebbles
Jul 2020
We had a great time on the beach although have beach shoes as the pebbles are hard to walk on in barefoot.
This made our stay enjoyable
