Greatstone Shingle Trail
This short walk takes you along the tideline on Greatstone beach towards Greatstone car park, then across to a small part of the Dungeness Nature Reserve, before coming back along part of the beach.
It is a trail with snippets of information about the wildlife you can see with ten information panels.
The walk will take you about an hour. During your walk you will see a variety of plant, animal and insect life, all explained by the information panels available along the route.
Just look for the bumble bee and follow the arrows.
