Lydden Spout Beach (Samphire Hoe)

Lydden Spout Beach - Kent

Another secluded beach situated under the famous white cliffs of Dover. The beach is mainly shingle but at low tide a few patches of sand can be found between the rockpools.

Like neighbouring Abbot's Cliff beach there is a risk of rock falls from the cliff face here so it is advised to sit away from the cliffs.
