A nice breakwater/ sea defence jetty constructed in the 1990's and known as Neptune's Arm. It is a short stroll of just under 10 minutes to the tip, which offers fantastic views of Herne Bay and the surrounding area. Well worth the walk.

Build as a sea defence, it's nice to walk along and look in each direction, either back to town or out to sea. Climb the platform at the end.

Easily found from the main central seafront car park, Neptune’s Arm is the breakwater for the small harbour and stops just in front of the pier. It is a 10 minute stroll along a flat well maintained surface. At the end of the arm is...More

Definitely worth the walk. Especially on a hot day as the sea breeze is lovely and cool. Also quieter than the Promenade. Great views of the bay out to sea and all 3 beaches. Ideal spot to watch the sun set.

Very good place to go fishing . But it it's very rocky I don't recermend it for beginner or kids. If you go east of the car car park the beach is clear from snags from the ship up . Andy Gamble

This is a sea defence that also provides a nice place to sit and look at the sea and gives a sea perspective on HB.

You get lovely views across the bay and back at Herne Bay. It looks further than it is so dont put it off. There is a view point at the end for even better views including the pier.

This is well worth the walk out, it gives great views both out to see and back along the seafront. Unusual design adds interest and the walking is flat and level so is accessable to most.

This is simply a walk out along a jetty but the best bits are the views back on the town. There is a little tower at the end which you can go up to get a full unobstructed 360 degree vista. It is a good...More
