Definitely for exploring and hiking rather than lounging or swimming, this is the second largest shingle formation in the world! A visually dramatic beach with great views, but entering the water is not advised.
The Romney Marshes border and has several RSPB hides and lots of local wildlife including stoats, marsh frogs, weasels and bats, so it's a great place to keep your eyes peeled for the local wildlife, and will more than satisfy those hoping for a mini beast safari.
There are a couple of pubs and a cafe at the steam train station (which has public toilets too) which itself runs to Dungeness from Hythe A great way to extend your day trip!
Th Old Lighthouse is often open to visitors, for details 01797 321300.

It may be worth checking out Dungeness Beach's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.
We do strongly suggest you contact Dungeness Beach before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
