Hythe Beach is a sheltered bay & great for kayaking. Princes Parade is long and has a road running along most of it’s length. Park right next to the low wall. Plenty of free parking. Tides are not strong, no rips, in a safe bay. Faces South, so avoid strong winds from off the sea.
Gentle offshore winds very calm and safe.
How to get there:
Junction 11 of the M20 for Hythe.
On Hythe seafront in Twiss road there are toilets. Parking all along the seafront.
Ins and Outs:
Anywhere along the seafront from Hythe to Sandgate
You can paddle along to Folkestone, don’t go right past Hythe when the Army firing ranges show a red flag.
Easy access to the beach, lots of free parking.
