Beaches & Countryside
One of the best things about the local area is the walks and cycling opportunities offering miles of sandy beaches, unique shingle beaches, birdwatching at the RSPB nature reserve or strolls along the historic military canal.
Though there are plenty of attractions to the Romney Marsh area, it is perhaps best enjoyed at a slow walking or cycling pace, along the various nature trails, sandy beaches and unique sights in the area.
You can start right next to the campsite as a nature trail passes by us, and all around the caravan park are green farmers fields threaded through by quiet country roads and cycle trails.
One of the most famous spots is Dungeness, in the very south eastern corner of the region, Dungeness consists of a vast expanse of shingle dotted with occasional lakes, unique houses like the artist Derek Jarman's famous cottage, old fisherman's shacks and of course the nuclear power station, which is now being decommissioned but certainly adds to the unusual atmosphere of the place.
Technically, although it's nearly all shingle, this is the UK's largest desert, fortunately, you can find a few fish and chip shops and pubs around this desert though!
Some of the other unusual and unique spots to walk around include the sound mirrors near Greatstone; huge structures designed to help people hear German bombers coming across the Channel during World War 2. There's also the unique birdlife at RSPB Dungeness reserve, or take a long stroll along the many miles of the Royal Military Canal, which has several pubs dotted around it in the surrounding countryside.
The more regular sandy beach adventures can be found all along the coast at Greatstone, St Mary's Bay, Sandgate and the wonderful Camber Sands; a huge, shallow beach with rolling sand dunes to explore and some beautiful south coast sunsets. And the sunsets can occasionally be topped by the stargazing; this is one of the darkest parts of the South East with very little light pollution which makes for a beautiful night sky.
