Most people will immediately think of the White Cliffs of Dover when the Kent coastline is mentioned. But the rest of the 350 miles* of the Garden of England's coast offers amazing variety and is well worth exploring. Everything from sandy beaches perfect for family outings.... to deserted marshes and a birdwatcher's paradise.
The aim of this website is to provide a pictorial reference to the entire coastline and answer the first question most people will ask when planning a trip: "what's the beach like?".
Some areas aren't fully covered yet and you may be able to help. The next part of this page explains how.
