Everyone speaks of driving past the turning without ever going in! Definitely glad we did. Can get very windy along the sea front so wouldn't advise visiting on a day that is already fairly windy! Loads of places to sit, toilets at car park and...More

Always a joy to visit in any season. The rangers are very knowledgeable and helpful. Spectacular cliffs and sea views. Interesting wildlife.

Peace and quiet. Wonderful walks, flora and fauna. Saw the early spider orchids today. The rangers are always so helpful, and the little refreshment kiosk is excellent. Samphire Hoe is a really special place.

No matter what the weather is doing this is a great place for an hours stroll and with a kiosk serving a very good hot chocolate at the end it gets even better.

Have been here many times. Very relaxing to stroll along the seafront under the cliffs or along the sea wall. Great for dog walks too. Tom Hardy recently filmed the Sky advert here, so must be good!

My girlfriend and I visited Samphire Hoe for a walk and fresh air, and were disappointed to find the sea front promenade was closed although the weather was reasonable. There are some lovely views but including the surrounding cliffs.

Whenever we visit samphire hoe we love it. You will drive down through a steep tunnel and it will feel like you have left the rest of the world at the top of the cliff. It is so peaceful and if you go to the...More

Not sure about public transport but cycling is a possibility but the main road before the turn off is very busy with freight traffic and when you leave the main road it is important you wait for the traffic lights as the... More
