Pegwell Bay (Ramsgate)

Pegwell Bay (Ramsgate) - Kent
© E Gammie and licensed for reuse under this Licence

Pegwell Bay is more than one beach. At one end of the bay is a sandy stretch that nestles up against the harbour in Ramsgate. This end is most popular with families and there is plenty to explore.  At the other the beach becomes a marshy nature reserve considered internationally important.

Pegwell Bay Country Park is home to species of migrating waders and wildfowl not seen elsewhere in Kent. For the twitchers there is a bird hide which is wheelchair accessible.
