This is a lovely flat sandy beach, perfect for sandcastles and paddling. It is very big when the tide is out, so lots of room for everyone. The village is quaint with gift shops, pubs and takeaways, aswell as the amusements and funfair. Would come again.

Lovely long beach, lots of sand when tides out. Sea Wall great for cycling and walking especially in the early morning , fantastic views. Lots of take aways,cafes/resturants and the local pub food is very good. (Pubs are The City Of London & Ocean Inn). Car parks do get full at weekends & Bank holidays, during holiday season,so get there early. The Romney, Hythe and Dymchurch Railway is a bit expensive.

I have been coming to St. Mary's Bay for several years, mainly for morning training sessions and runs. I time it for low tides, when there is a vast stretch of coast available. I love the way the shape and form of the beach changes over the seasons.

Great beach, especially out of season, where there's little activity and can enjoy getting lost in your own thoughts.

People of the town are friendly and open. It is also close to neighbouring Hythe, with its gardens and quaint shops.

We visited the beach at Dymchurch on Sunday 3rd August 2014,this was my Mother in Laws's 89 birthday.
We traveled from Germany to London to take Nannie to the seaside,Nannie is in a wheelchair after our journey to the beach we needed to find toilet facilities.
We found the first Disabled toilet next to the parking area,this was locked and not in use,we tried to get the wheelchair into a normal size toilet but the wheelchair was to wide.
Going up onto the beach using the ramp system we founda sign fo ra disabled toilet,this diabled toilet cost 20pence,we paid and opened the door apon finding an appaling site.
Filth,on the seat and the floor,water overflowing from the hand basin.
My husband had to clean up the mess before Nannie could use the toilet.All other toilets we unusable so everyone was waiting for the disabled toilet.
This is unthinkable intodays world,what is the point in having a great beach,wonderful locals,if the facilities are left in such a unusable state.
Pota Loos would solve your problems
