Botany Bay, Kent This is the most northerly of Broadstairss beaches, and perhaps the prettiest – a 660ft curve of sand backed by white cliffs, with chalk stacks, rock pools and safe swimming. At low tide you can walk to Joss Bay, Kents best surf beach.
"North of the modern town centre in Old Hunstanton find the gorgeous banded cliffs are made of layers of red limestone with a white chalk layer on top. The cliffs – a perfect geology textbook illustration – are framed by a foreground of chalky sand and green, seaweed-covered rocks. With the setting sun lighting up the cliffs as it lowers across the Wash, this is the sort of place that landscape photographers get excited about." Slow Travel Norfolk; www.bradtguides.com
