Beach walks: stunning seaside strolls in the Garden of England
Kent Coast benefits from a brilliant position overlooking the Thames Estuary, close to the waterway’s widest point. There are stunning views of the surrounding area from the park and Allhallows Beach that accompanies it, providing the perfect setting for a stroll along the sea. Head east or west and you won’t be disappointed.
Walk east for a mile and spot Yantlet Beach basking in untouched glory. When you head west, you’ll spot Coombe Point Beach glistening against the waves, again just a mile from your base. The Hoo Peninsula that hosts us is rural to say the least, so you can expect an unspoilt landscape full of walks that unlock it in all its glory.
Beach attractions: fun-filled time with the family
The peace and quiet of Allhallows is an attraction in itself. The untouched coastal paradise is a reminder of just how different the scenery can be when you travel a modest distance outside of big cities. Head deeper into Kent for a day out. Experiences like the Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway are amazing things to do as a kid, just ask this writer!
A ride of this is a great way to unlock more beaches in Kent, with the delightful Dymchurch Beach contrasting magnificently with the mysterious Dungeness further along the coast. For a classic day out by the seaside, head for Margate Beach - home to everything you’ll need and an increasingly prominent arts scene. We couldn’t finish without shouting out the White Cliffs of Dover either. The simply magnificent natural wonder offers a brilliant view of France on a clear day.
