Season: autumn

Sitting between Dover and Deal, Kingsdown beach is a quiet spot, backed by a pub and a coastal cycle track.  This is a place for reflection and tranquility.  As well as seals to enjoy out at sea, a low tide exposes interesting rock pools to explore.  There are chalk cliffs to one side, with scrub land behind.  Being a shingle beach, it falls away steeply, so swimming is best avoided, since strong currents operate here.  In short, this is a fine getaway, if you’d like time to think things through and if you have an appetite for all things natural.
