fun on the beaches

Sheppey’s beautiful resort beaches include Sheerness Beach (Beach Street), Minster (The Leas), and Leysdown (Promenade), all of which were awarded Blue Flag awards in 2016.

These are dog-free (seasonal) beaches overlooking the Thames Estuary, with traditional seaside activities such as a park with free sandpit and water play facilities at Sheerness.

Minster is a quieter rural beach, with an adjacent watersports zone and coastal park. Take a relaxing two mile stroll along the beach from Sheerness to Minster, and end with a freshly cooked lunch at the beach cafe, The Little Oyster.

Leysdown, meanwhile, is a bustling resort with a sandy beach and traditional amusement facilities.

The RNLI lifeguards patrol these beaches during summer peak times.
