Is Sheerness beach worth visiting?

Sheerness beach is a popular hotspot for sun worshippers during peak season.

It is made up mostly of shingle – but there are small areas of sand when the tide goes out.

RNLI lifeguards are on duty at the beach from the middle of July until the start of September.

As well as that, there is a First Aid facility nearby.

There are public toilets nearby in Sheppey Leisure Centre – which are regularly cleaned.

The beach is the main attraction in the area – but there’s a lot of other things to do if you’re not an avid sun worshipper.

The Hollands Amusements – which is accessed from Beachfields Park – is a great place to keep the kids entertained.

If you fancy something more challenge, head to the Isle of Sheppey Sailing Club.

In Sheerness town centre there is a wide range of shops, cafes and restaurants.

Should you find yourself in the area on a Tuesday or Saturday, you will be able to visit the Sheerness Market in the Rose Street Car Park.

If you want to spend the night in the area, check out The Royal Hotel.
