  • Hidden gem so close to Dover! great trails and sea wall for walking along. Great fishing as well, but remember rotten bottoms if fishing on the bottom.
  • Very nice place for a good walk, far away from roads and noise other than the noise of the sea and wind. Lovely views especially from the top of the white cliffs. Nice little cafe/hut with sells food, drinks and ice-cream. No indoor seating but there are benches and tables.
  • Breath-taking views and lots of easy walks available. One piece of advice.....always be prepared for the weather to be very different from anywhere else nearby. This area can have a climate of its own, so always bring warm clothes.
  • a great place to take a calming walk or just to relax in.
  • Fantastic place to take the family for a stroll. Reasonable parking costs, a cafe, and a nice walk along the greenery and then back along the sea wall.
