The ruined church at Reculver sits on a prominent headland that is now a Country Park, managed in partnership by Canterbury City Council, English Heritage and Kent Wildlife Trust. At Reculver, the Saxon Shore Way leaves the coast to make its way inland, following the shoreline of the old Wantsum Channel that once separated the Isle of Thanet from mainland Kent. A concrete track along the top of the sea defences provides a bracing walk and cycle route to Minnis Bay. The modern day coast path continues along the sea wall and is way marked Thanet Coast Path, and Wantsum Walk. Minnis Bay is a long sandy bay on the outskirts of Birchington with rocky and shingle areas, promenade and paddling pool – the perfect place to let the kids run around!
