    You can walk for miles along the sea front
    The energetic can walk from Dungeness to Dymchurch via Littlestone. We visited Dungeness and then drove to Littlestone and had a lovely return walk to St Mary's Bay. The beach is stony but there is a path at the top of the beach (beware of cyclists!!) which makes walking easier. We spent time watching the seagulls and a seal offshore and had a picnic on the beach whilst collecting shells. Probably not an ideal beach for youngsters (no sand) but a lovely place for walking and breathing in the sea air.

    Great spot for an ice cream!
    Honestly, we were staying in St Mary’s Bay so didn’t really visit Littlestone for the beach itself. It is however a beautiful spot with some great facilities especially the kids play area for those with little ones. We mainly stopped here for ice creams… if you see the ice cream van here… stop!

    Just the place for a bracing walk
    On a sunny, Spring day, this is just the place for a bracing walk. When the tide is in, though, the beach that is left is shingle, which is not that easy to walk on and can be very tiring. Fortunately, there is a small, level walkway at the back of the beach, but this is used by both walkers and cyclists, so you have to watch out. Free parking is available on a rough unmade road behind the beach at the end of Maderia Road.

Went for our morning walks here while staying at New Romney caravan park. Very quiet at this time of the year. We've only met a few other families and some dog walkers.
There is a playground and a gym behind the beach huts, so the children were happy.

This beach is mostly mud when the tide is out, deep sticky mud, and the sea is brown. Thin sliver of sand and mostly peddles nearest to the car park. Nice views though and easy to park.
Can't say we'll be racing back anytime soon.

I found this little beach by accident while our for a drive with the family.

After a quick inspection we decided to park up and spend a few hours here paddling in the water and walking along the beach.

It was a very hot and sunny day but the breeze blowing helped cool us down. The views around the coastline are amazing and you can see for miles.

Not sure if it was because of the time of year but it was not very busy which made it even more enjoyable as these wasn’t the usual squeeze you find at other beaches.

We found the local park for when the water got a little to much which was a nice distraction.

Overall I can’t find anything negative about this little beach and I hope to visit again over the school holidays and my daughter really enjoyed our day out here.

Littlestone should have been Bigstones...

But as you walk towards Dungeness it quickly becomes Sand Dunes so don't worry.

This beach is full of cockles so you find yourself bent over the sand for hours at a time to plenty of factor 50 needed.

While in Littlestone looking out to sea at low tide you can see the remains of the Mulberry Bridge that was built in parts to help with landings at Normandy in ww11 but some came loose and that is how this part beached where it is now. Today it causes a danger to boats so has lights in all the corners and therefore resembles a fort out in the sea.

If you want to go for a long, invigorating walk, then Littlestone Beach is the place for you It is a shingle beach, so it is not that wheelchair or pushchair friendly but, at the back, there is a concrete promenade for walkers, skateboarders and cyclists. When the tide is out you can even see a bit of Second World War memorabilia; a piece of Mulberry Harbour

Love this stretch of beach because it is pretty much always empty. The shingle beach is not as nice for kids as Dymchurch but you get space and quiet. There is a beach car park + a big beach shop where you can get ice creams and a wide selection of food and drink. The RNLI station is sometimes open and you can grab a coffee there or browse in their souvenir shop. Lovely part of Kent

Took young granddaughter here. Had great time, both on swings and gym equipment available for all, although have to be over 12 to use gym things. Then went onto beach to look for shells and unusual stones. Found rubbish instead which we both picked up and deposited in bin provided by council.

Clean quiet beach with good sandy area once tide out.
Downside is the sea goes out for miles but leaves open areas of mudflats & mud holes This made it restrictive with children as we were concerned about sinking into mud which was also very dirty
Having said that we just enjoyed the sea when it was in & built sand castles when it wasn't Once sea back in lovely sandy base for jumping the waves

Good children's playground and exercise area - picnic areas dog walking - shingle beach with sand at low tide
Reasonable prom on the eastern side of the beach - good local shop and eating places
All round a pleasant gentle afternoon with no commercial pressure but plant of beach edge parking
Well worth a visit if you want a quiet place with a little something to entertain young children at no cost
