This is a gentle coastal walk linking 3 historic coastal towns. Much of the walk is along low chalk cliffs with views over the channel, with several secluded coves. At low tide, you can walk along the beach between them.
Ramsgate has an interesting old town area, a harbour with a harbour arm to walk along, with a bistro at the end, and a large new Victoria Pavillion.
Broadstairs also has an interesting old town, as well as a sandy beach and links to Charles Dickens.
Botany Bay is the most secluded and prettiest beach - its western end (only) with sand dunes is discreetly used by naturists.
