Minster Leas

About

Minster Leas is a Blue Flag award winning (2017) beach on the north coast of the Isle of Sheppey in Kent.

A long sand and shingle beach facing north-east on the Isle of Sheppey. Backed by marshes and the small historic town of Minster, there are fantastic views of the estuary from the wide, long promenade.

A popular spot for windsurfers and fishermen. There is a golf course nearby and a boating lake in the coastal park. The watersports beach is located at the Shingle Bank beach, next to Minster Leas beach. Also, a popular beach for walkers and those who just want to admire the great views.
