Sunny Sands Beach - Kent

Sunny Sands Beach is a popular sandy beach located close to the centre of town and next to Folkestone Harbour. As such all the facilities are close by including caf├ęs, pubs, shops and toilets.


The fact that this is one of the closest sandy beaches to London means it can get quite busy in the summer. And the sand here is great for making sandcastles - it must be judging by the entries to the annual sandcastle building competition!
