The South East England region
Beach Haven sits in the village of Camber which stretches along the coast between Hastings and Dover. Camber is well known for its stunning beach. Camber Sands is famous for the long ridges of sand dunes leading down to miles of soft golden sands. Camber has been the location for many films, especially if 'desert shots' are required. When planning a day on the sands it is well worth checking the local tide tables as the extensive shallows at low tide make for a very long walk before it is deep enough to swim. With such a large open space, power kites are a popular pastime at the far end of the beach. On either side of Camber are contrasting places of interest. Quaint and pretty Rye has fabulous shops and tea-houses and is steeped in history. Dungeness, to the east of camber, is surreal and invigorating. Spot the extraordinary houses built by avant garde architects, in amongst the converted railway carriages.
Camber Sands is one of the best white sandy beaches on the South Coast, stretching for 2 ½ miles. In all Camber has 7 miles of Blue Flag award winning beach. It is perfect for building sandcastles and flying kites with all the family. The more adventurous can try some water sports. The beach offers the ideal place for taking a relaxing walk. Galloping horses are not an unusual sight in the winter months. During the summer, the horses have to have their exercise before 7am. The beach has dog-free zones in the summer months too. Endless hours of fun can be had by children simply playing in the sand dunes. The panoramic view from the top of the dunes is hard to beat and will hopefully give you a revitalizing sense of space.
Windsurfing and kite surfing are amongst the water sports available at and around Camber. Rye Water Sports offer lessons in windsurfing and sailing for kids and adults in their lake so you can perfect your technique before heading for the open water. With constant wind blowing straight off the sea, or from the vast expanse of Romney Marsh, this premier water sports centre is blasted with wind even in summer. Action Water Sports, 10 minutes towards Dungeness, is the best in the area for waterskiing, wakeboarding, jet skiing and is renowned for barefoot waterskiing, for complete beginners to the more experienced.

Experience the strange and eerie beauty that is Dungeness, or Britain’s ’hidden quarter’, just 10 minutes drive from Camber. This private estate is made up of the largest area of shingle on Earth and is the only classified desert in the U.K. The artist and film-maker Derek Jarmen made Prospect Cottage, here, his home and it is a worthy testament to his creativity and determination. His home and the others around it stand stranded in this stark landscape, now dominated and threatened by the vast nuclear reactor behind them.
The sense of isolation and other-worldliness present at Dungeness has inspired many artists and photographers.
The Old Lighthouse is an Historic Grade 11 building opened with great ceremony by His Royal Majesty the Prince of Wales in 1904 after a 3 year build, it survived two world wars before decommission in 1960. Climb the tower for panoramic aspects over the English Channel and the surrounding countryside. Binoculars are well worth bringing.
A trip to Dungeness is not quite complete without a visit to the Pilot Inn for a crusty wave of batter on your fish, and chips.
