White Cliffs & Golden Beaches

This stretch of coast is instantly recognisable for its famous white cliffs, sweeping headlands and dazzling beaches, but look a little further and you’ll discover that Kent and Sussex hold plenty of seaside surprises too!

Most of the beaches in East Sussex are the shingle kind, but Camber Sands is one glorious exception. Stretching for 7 miles and backed by impressive rolling dunes, its smooth, powdery shores are ideal for everything from sandcastle building to kite buggying.

St Margaret’s Bay Beach in Kent is all about the views: on one side the White Cliffs of Dover, the other, non-stop panoramas of the French Coast. It’s mesmerising!

Further north, Broadstairs impresses with its assortment of golden beaches. Viking Bay is the most popular and has all the usual seaside favourites, while secluded, secret Botany Bay piles on the drama and romance with its smugglers’ caves and magnificent stacks.
