If there was an award for the tackiest place in Britain, then Leysdown would win it hands down! This place makes you feel embarrassed to be British.

A beach with a combination of sand, pebbles, and sharp broken shells. Broken up at short distances by old wooden groynes. Usual dog bans during season.
