If you find yourself in Deal then do take the time out to visit the small village of Kingsdown which is about two miles away and its beautiful beach - I suggest that a walk along the excellent coastal path is the best option as parking is very limited in Kingsdown. The beach which is mainly set to pebbles is lovely and the bathing if you use common sense is safe. At certain times of the day there are rock pools and there is a great sense of space on the beach. The Zetland Arms faces the beach and is quite beautiful and about five minutes away is The Rising Sun which is just as nice. At the end of the beach one can see the beginning of the famous White Cliffs which stretch more or less all the way to Dover. There is an abandoned firing range which in theory is private but it is well visited . This said it is not that suitable for young children. But if you are sensible it is a really peaceful place to explore with the great cliffs on one side and the sea on the other. Again please just use common sense and remember that the derelict signs are there for a purpose. Once you have visited Kingsdown and its beach you will not forget it as it has views to France and the ferries can be clearly seen. Lastly the light in this area is incredible and the equal of Venice but I will let you find out for yourselves . SMO

Campsite lovely ,views of the sea spectacular; but on a more basic hygiene issue people were brushing their teeth and spitting into the hand wash basins in the toilets, this should not be permitted in the current situation. The staff were friendly and professional, the showers were family friendly and water always at a safe warm temperature . I was disappointed that their were no recycling facilities for all our rubbish,it breaks my heart to see all that rubbish go into landfill..There are some lovely walks to Deal and St Margarets Bay with stunning views and beautiful fauna .

This is a wonderful place, very much revered and enjoyed by the local people and those from nearby places........however this is spoilt by being overrun by the 'downfromlondon' crowd who really don't give back what they take from this place at the weekends and height of summer. If they want sand and ice cream then go to Brighton...............

Not a beach for families wanting sand but has an unspoilt fairly rugged feel. This is an uncompromising shingle beach with cliffs to the far end and amazing wild flowers growing alongside the pebbles. Vipers bugloss is growing in gay abandon and definitely worth the trip.
