Lovely views great for cyclists too if approach using the cycle paths on the Deal seafront as Kingsdown itself on a hill. can get busy and parking an issue . Local tearooms great for sunsets evening walks. Plus a pint in the Zetland Arms.

Good to be able to walk for miles along the seafront, and good that it doesn’t appear to get very busy, but too many pebbles.

Stopped here by chance at high tide when the bay is best for swimming being sheltered and calm (depending on the wind). Must re-visit at low tide. No facilities at South end but couple of pubs around 1 mile towards Deal

It’s a stony beach and probably because of that has never been crowded when we have visited. Nice enough but not amazing. Parking is limited by the beach.

We had a lovely day at the beach. Not too crowded. The kids had a fab time in the sea and searching for sea creatures Would highly recommend a visit to anyone
