Season: autumn

Located in a sheltered bay on the southern side of Ramsgate, Pegwell Bay and its beach are part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest, as well as comprising the northern end of the Sandwich & Pegwell Bay National Nature Reserve.  Not surprisingly then, that the southern end of the arcing beach is a haven for wildlife, particularly when the tide recedes to attract wading birds and skittering oystercatchers.  There’s a hide to ensure privacy and to minimise disruption to the wildlife.  At the northern end, the beach is popular with families and enjoys the access and facilities that Ramsgate offers.  In short, there’s something for everyone at Pegwell Bay.  Highly recommended.

What the beach means to Bill.


A natural wonderland at Pegwell Bay.  My reference to the Viking ship “The Hugin” should have been pronounced “Hoogin”.
