What’s there?

This is Sheppey’s windsurfing and watersports beach, the open uncluttered nature of the beach is ideal for the sport. There is a launching area which is popular with fishermen and dinghy sailors.

The shingle bank is quite steep here and not really suitable for family bathing. (Our photos wre taken at low tide).

Parking is available on the shingle bank itself.

There is not a lot else here, you have to go into Minster Leas Beach or Barton’s Point Coastal Park to find any toilets.
