Sunny Sands (Folkestone)
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 cafés, 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!
There is a seasonal, independently run lifeguard service at Sunny Sands on Saturdays and Sundays, between the hours of 10am and 4pm from April until September.

Great beach when the tide is out… Good for the children to play in the sand and paddle in the Sea… toilets are okayish for a beach
Love this beach!

Fun beach I love it since there’s no rocks and it’s just the perfect beach to swim, surf, or have an evening walk ( if it’s low tide ofcourse ) and after a day at the beach you can go along the Harbour and get chips or ice cream or fresh fish and shellfish from the local shops

Good, popular sandy beach except at high tide when it disappears!
