Pegwell Bay Beach

Pegwell Bay is a stretch of unprotected sea cliffs with great geological interest and a sandy bay. The bay is part of Kent’s largest National Nature Reserve.

A full-size replica Scandinavian longboat ‘Hugin’, complete with shields stands on the cliff top overlooking the bay to commemorate the first Anglo-Saxon landings in England hereabouts.

At the north east corner of the bay are the remains of a cross-channel hoverport that operated between 1969 until 1982.

Facilities include toilets, cafe, parking and picnic area.
