Best Coastal Walk near Hythe to Blow Away the January Blues

August 18, 2020 2 min read

January is notoriously one of the toughest months of the year, when the joys of Christmas feel like a distant memory to all but the bank account, but it’s also the time of year when good intentions to get more fresh air and exercise are often renewed. One of the many advantages of being based in Hythe is having such a beautiful coastline on our doorstep.  Here are a few of our favourite walks.

Folkestone to Sandgate
Starting off at Folkestone harbour to admire the views from the new viaduct, take the boardwalk path through the beautiful, Green Flag awarded, Lower Leas Coastal Park and gardens.  From here simply following the coast until you reach Sandgate, or if you’re looking for a slightly longer walk why not continue along to the wonderful town of Hythe and enjoy the tranquillity of the Royal Military Canal or a rest at one of the bars or cafes.

Hythe to Dungeness
Admittedly this may be a bit too much of a trek for most but it’s definitely worth the effort. The Blue Flag awarded shingle beach stretches from Hythe (just behind our first shop in Stade Street) all the way through Dymchurch, New Romney (where you can drop into the RNLI station for a quick coffee), along to the beautifully rugged Dungeness.   The Romney, Hythe Dymchurch light railway also follows this route if you were to need a ride back at any point!

Kingsdown to Dover
Starting at the northern end of the White Cliffs, follow the iconic chalk cliffs along to the port of Dover whilst enjoying the views across the English Channel and onto France (a great view on a clear day).  If you wanted to make a day of it, why not visit the stunning Medieval Dover Castle, managed by English Heritage and boasting the best views over the port of Dover.
