Herne Bay Beach
Herne Bay is a popular Kent seaside town with a long promenade with the central part of the seafront including seafront gardens and a central bandstand housing a visitor centre. The beach is shingle with wooden groynes giving way to sandy mudflats at low tide and is a popular bathing area for families with amusements and amenities nearby.
The sandy mudflats provide great opportunities for beachcombing with many prehistoric sharks’ teeth fossils on the foreshore.
Facilities include beach huts, town centre shops, cafe, restaurants, toilets, lifeguards and parking.
Herne Bay Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
