Visited the Deal front and walked the beach. Very high beach and covered in coarse shingle. Used by boats to tether on ground.

Good beach right by the town centre, gently sloping iinto the sea. Backed by shops and restuarants with a lovely pier with a great cafe at the end. Good to walk to Walmer.
