  • Stretches from Bishopstone Glen to Minnis Bay. The beach is shingle with vast mud flats exposed at low tide attracting a multitude of waders. Huge flocks of Brent geese can be seen in winter. The cliff top between Bishopstone and Reculver is managed as meadow and sand martins nest in the cliff during the summer. On the beach below the cliff fossils and shark teeth can often be found but care must be taken not to be cut off by the incoming tide. Reculver marsh is predominantly farmland crossed by hedgerow, ditches and dykes in which dragonflies and damselflies breed. The area is popular with walkers, dog walkers, runners cyclists (the Oyster Bay cycle path runs through the park) and bird watchers. The car park at Reculver is 80p per hour but the small car parks at Bishopstone are free. There are public toilets, a small visitor centre, pub and coffee shop at Reculver. The main sea wall path between Reculver and Minnis Bay is concrete, flat and easy going for all the family, but there is little protection from the elements.
