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.
