On the Isle of Sheppey we stopped first at the sea front at Sheerness, parking near the Neptune Snooker Hall. There is a good path around the coast and at low tide there is a sandy bit. Dogs are allowed all year round. Further around is the sea front at Minster which is more popular and you can swim – which means no dogs on the beach in the summer months (but it’s a pebble beach anyway). There are no public loos but there are pieces of gym equipment all along the path for everyone to use and further up there are beach huts (we’ll check those out next time).
There is a pub and cafe along this stretch and local shops not too far away. Here we saw identical twins in their 60s walking arm in arm and wearing exactly the same outfit from head to toe (hair colour and style, sunglasses, handbags, clothes and shoes).
