Information Boards in Pegwell Bay Nature Reserve
As seen from Viking Coastal Trail and Thanet Coastal Path on a path between Cliffs End and Sandwich.

The boards show what birdlife can be seen in the bay.
Viking Coastal Trail
The Viking Coastal Trail is a 29-mile route around the Isle of Thanet, the point where Vikings first landed in Britain, keeping as close as is possible to the coast from Reculver, passing through Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate to reach Pegwell Bay where the Trail uses an inland loop on quiet lanes through pretty Kentish villages with ancient churches and passes Minster Abbey, one of Englandís oldest inhabited buildings founded in 670, to return.
Thanet Coastal Path
The waymarked Thanet Coastal Path (20 miles and on OS mapping but no publication) is an often coincident linear route with the Viking Coastal Trail on the coastal section between the Thanet boundary near Reculver and Pegwell Bay. It winds its way past sandy beaches and bays, often against a backdrop of spectacular chalk cliffs. Ramsgate and Margate are lively seaside resorts and Broadstairs has nostalgic charm. For walkers the obvious inland return is on the Saxon Shore Way but the nearest footpath link to Pegwell Bay is at Sandwich, making a much longer route: both the Trail and Path link with the Saxon Shore Way (and Wantsum Walk) at Reculver.
