Camber Sands withholds its beauty until the last second – it’s hidden beyond a mountain of sand dunes. The beach itself is a vast seven mile sweep of soft sand that’s half a mile wide at low tide. Families enjoy the views from behind their wind breaks and then emerge to build sandcastles or paddle in the sea. The constant breeze also makes it popular with kite boarders and windsurfers, but they are kept within a restricted part of the beach. There are tacky elements at Camber, with tat and burger stalls near the enormous carpark, but there’s also The Gallivant Hotel & Bistro (01797 225 057, www.thegallivanthotel.com) which serves great seafood and has a good children’s menu. The hotel also runs a Beach Café which has a large outdoor terrace and serves barbecues in the summer season.
