“A real surprise packet....”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

We had a great time in Herne Bay and like Whitstable, it is a very well managed, relaxing seaside town. It is not full of tacky gambling halls, as are in many English seaside resorts. It is a family place that has retained it,s "Englishness" and it is possible here to just hang around the beach, talk to the many walkers and bathers and then wander through the friendly High Street. We were here 45 years ago and to it,s credit, it has not changed that much. Congratulations to the local governing bodies who have looked after the place and kept it as it should be........ a safe, affordable, family holiday area.

“Very pleasant weekend retreat”
Reviewed June 23, 2013

I went to Herne Bay last weekend with family in order to visit some old friends. We decided to pop along to the bandstand and had a very pleasant lunch before spending the rest of the day in Canterbury. As far as beaches go, this one is all pebbles and isn't that great for kids. It's not really a beach resort. It's more suited to an adult day or weekend break. There isn't much to do generally and there are the token amusement arcades which don't really float my boat. It's almost as though someone started to build a beach resort but then stopped half way. To be honest, I'm very glad they did. The area has a certain calm and charm than it would have otherwise had.

“herne bay beach”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

the beach itself is very clean and 'no dogs allowed on the beach' is as it should be but owners walking their dogs on the promenade do not always pick up the dog mess. some entertainment for young children is very good.
