Overview

'Following the Thanet Coastal Path is a unique experience following the longest continuous stretch of coastal chalk coastline in the country - and covers the extensive Blue Flag beaches and wealth of coastal and marine wildlife that is covered by the international designation of the North East Kent European marine site ... In many places, the coastal path has been upgraded as part of longer Viking Coastal Trail [32 miles cycle route] that roughly encircles the former Isle of Thanet from the coast (Reculver to Pegwell Bay), to the inland villages of Minster, Monkton and St Nicholas-at-Wade.'

Overview

'These high chalk cliffs look out onto the English Channel, giving far-reaching views towards the French coast. The best way to see the cliffs is to take a walk along the coastal path towards South Foreland Lighthouse. You’ll get a great view of the cliffs and also see the chalk grassland that’s home to so many unusual plants and insects like the chalkhill blue butterfly and the pyramidal orchid.'

Overview

'This walk is probably better known as Robinson Crusoe's walk since this is where Daniel Defoe places his character, in the novel of the same name, after being shipwrecked with a resulting walk to Great Yarmouth. Although such a stormy day would not make the best of walks, when the sun shines and the tide is out this really is a great walk.'
