Best beaches in Kent

Some of the most popular beaches in Kent include Folkestone Beach, St Margaret's Bay, Sandwich Bay and St Mary's Bay.

At the foot of our Folkestone Club Site is a scenic shingle beach that’s perfect for a seaside view without having to venture too far. It’s an ideal spot for families, birdwatchers, sea anglers and walkers.

About 30 minutes east of our Folkestone Club Site, beyond Dover, is the serene St Margaret’s Bay. This small, shingle beach is overlooked by Kent’s illustrious white chalk cliffs. It’s a great site to enjoy outdoor recreations and dogs are welcome all year round. The beach is a favourite among locals and visitors alike.

Continue on from St Margaret’s Bay and you will arrive in the historic town of Sandwich. Characterised by a sweeping stretch of sand at Sandwich Bay, the beach is an attractive setting situated close to a nature reserve and bordered to the north by the resplendent River Stour.

Head west from our Folkestone Club Site and you will reach St Mary’s Bay, home to an exquisite stretch of sand, which spans at least half a mile during low tide. Sitting pretty - close to the wetlands of Romney Marsh, one of three coastal marshlands in the southeast - at the height of summer, St Mary’s Bay is brilliant for bathing and is super family-friendly.

Dymchurch Beach is a delightful stretch of golden sand that looks out across the English Channel. It’s a heavenly haven that’s heaving with miles of fine sand – it really is the crème de la crème of Kent’s beaches and was awarded a Certificate of Excellence by Tripadvisor.

The county of Kent offers some of Britain’s best coastal camping holidays. The region is idyllic and incredibly invigorating and its beaches are among the most attractive in the world. We invite you to enjoy a restful and memorable getaway experience, revelling in all that the famous Kent coastline has to offer.
