Herne Bay

Herne Bay is a delightful part of the Kentish Coastline. There is definitely a sense of the good old 'British Sea-side' here with charm and energy to increase the visitors's experience. The main town area of Herne Bay is a pedestrian zone allowing you to relax and browse or even bargain hunt in the Antique shops without the hustle of a busy through road.

It is possible to walk or cycle the coastline all the way round past Whitstable and on to Reculver. With a coasline boasting unspoilt beaches it really is a pleasure to embrace this often overlooked corner of this fabulous county.

Herne Bay grew dramatically during the Victorian Period and now boasts a safe beach award. The seafront was renovated in the early 1990's and a small harbour built allowing for stunning views of both the seafront and famously beautiful sunsets over the bay. Herne Bay beach was used as a testing site for the bouncing bomb on the part that stretches out towards Reculver but now it is a relaxing part of the Kentish shoreline enjoyed by visitors from far and wide.

A National Lottery Grant allowed for the Central Bandstand to be restored and it was re-opened in the 1990s. Summertime allows the tourist and residsent alike to enjoy Sunday afternoon concerts while taking in the beautiful surroundings and the pleasant gardens that run along the seafront.

Herne Bay lies about a mile from Whitstable and can be accessed from Whitstable by a sea fron path suitable for both bikes and walkers. The populaiton of Herne Bay is over 35,000 which makes it slightly more populated than it's neighbour Whitstable.

There are plenty of shops, restaurants, pubs and bars to suit all tastes in Herne Bay. There is definitely something for everyone.

While visitng Herne Bay why not relax on the beach or brave a dip in the sea? Enjoy some watersports activities such as Jet Skiing or sailing.
