A hidden cove and former smugglers' haunt, Botany Bay is backed by white cliffs. At low tide, you can walk south to Joss Bay, Kent’s best surfing beach. Then there’s Dungeness – Europe's largest shingle peninsula – which is bleak, eerie and strangely beautiful. And Whitstable is all about fisherman's cottages and oysters. The long beach is dotted with beach huts, plus there are oyster stalls to enjoy in the harbour. And you’ll see spectacular sunsets here over the Isle of Sheppey.
A trip to Kent wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the White Cliffs of Dover, this four mile walk takes in views of the famous cliffs and on a clear day even France. With picturesque coastal towns and villages, English Heritage sites and modern art galleries you're never stuck for things to do in Kent.
