A relatively small section of the Harbour area and clearly the availability of some sand rather than the shingle elsewhere on this coast, is a major factor. It was pretty busy but a very nice atmosphere. There are numbers of extremely good value fast food outlets - a large tub of cockles only cost me £1.50. This summer the site... More

A beautiful beach in Folkestone. Calm shallow waters and not to salty. Lovely flat beach with a nice little cafe nearby. Definitely our new favourite little place.

Sunny sands was very nice beach to go to. It was nice to make sand castles and children enjoyed and time passes by so fast when you are enjoying. Nice place to fly kites, and enjoy the fun. The weather was good all the time

Lovely clean beach with nice friendly people. It is a shame that the Coronation Parade is closed at the moment.
