Greatstone Beach is a flat beach over two miles long and the dunes. It is advised you check tides as the flatness means that the difference between high and low tide can be almost a quarter of a mile, so getting to the water for a swim will take a little longer! The flatness also means that is popular for sports that use the wind, and bird watchers find this a favourite too, and the Greatstone Dunes add to the beaches attraction.

Two pay & display car parks are adjacent to the beach: Coast Drive and the Parade.

Certain areas are closed to dogs from 1 May to 30 September.

Advisory Notes
Folkestone & Hythe council caution consideration when the tide it out reveals half a mile of mud, so follow safety information related to mudholes.
