From sandy beaches and shingle shorelines to towering cliffs and haunting marshes, the variety of the Kent coast is extensive.
Kent’s glorious coastline extends a staggering 350 miles and is one of the longest and most diverse coastlines in the whole country. From sandy beaches and shingle shorelines to towering cliffs and unspoilt marshes, the variety of the Kent coast ensures that there is a piece of Kentish seaside to suit everyone. The iconic White Cliffs of Dover form one of the country’s best- known landmarks and the first sight welcoming visitors from the Continent. Add to that picturesque small harbours, international ports, traditional holiday resorts and miles of sandy beaches as well as heritage sites and wildlife areas, and it’s obvious why the county’s coast is such an attraction.
