Perfect If you want to walk out into the water with out getting wet. Nothing going on just a nice walk climb the steps and talk back. Safe and sturdy.

Neptune's Arm provides a simple alternative to the pier. Built as a safewater harbour, it has provided a seawall walk into the water at high tide, and a view of small craft resting on the mud at low tide.

This 'arm' encloses an area of sea in which small boats are anchored. It presents a very attractive view and makes a good photo.

We had a brisk walk along this modern sea wall.I would imagine this was the view one got of the beach and clock tower in the days of the original piers.I took some photos and was glad of the seat at the end.We could see for quite some distance.I would not fancy it in inclement weather though!

Nice little walk on a fine day. You get a nice view of the sea and Herne Bay sea front. Watch out for sea gulls, when we went a mother was protecting her young, so we were dive-bombed.

A nice warm evening, quiet and full of scenic views. A nice walk with a little platform at the end ideal for pictures and staring out to sea with your thoughts. Lovely

After a very long walk we stopped her for a pint. There were table and chairs on the beach which was lovely to sit in the sun shine and watch the sea rolling in

A gentle stroll along this pier made a lovely way to pass part of a beautiful day in Herne Bay. The views are gorgeous from the end and allow you to look back on the seafront and the clock tower. A lovely detour, but not necessarily deemed as 'essential viewing'. Ting tots might need close controlling.

Nice walk around the little harbour. Has a small viewing area up some steps. Is nice to walk to the end and back on a sunny day.
