This trail encompasses 3 colour coded trails - red, blue and yellow. You can choose to complete the whole trail at once which will take a full day if you visit some of the attractions along the way or you can do 1 at a time. This trail is part of the Saxon Shore Way so look out for the green signs along the way.
Watch how your surroundings change as you move from the uniquely charming fishing town of Whitstable to the more vibrant seaside resort of Herne Bay with it's Victorian villas, buckets and spades and amusement arcades. It all changes again as you approach Reculver Country Park where people are swapped for birds, beach becomes fields and buildings are replaced by the twin towers of St Mary's Church. This trail is a leisurely walk or cycle with only a couple of steep hills and follows the sea all the way.
