Deal

Book 2 Walk 30 Dover to Deal

Deal has a long beach of steeply shelving pebbles and people do swim here. But watch out for the currents, which are very strong, running northwards up the coast from two hours before high water until four hours after high water, then reversing direction to flow southwards. As the sea also gets deep quite quickly, this is probably one for experienced swimmers only. You definitely do not want to go too far from the shore here.

  • Food and drink: the striking new cafe at the end of Deal pier comes highly recommended for its fine panoramic views. Otherwise, cafes cluster around the landward end of the pier, and the town has a number of atmospheric old pubs. Note also the Zetland Arms at the very south end of the beach, near the point where cliffs start, which opens in the afternoon on summer weekends

  1. Not strictly accurate on the timing of the side-to-side currents. The flow towards Ramsgate (northerly) starts roughly two hours before high water. The flow back towards Dover starts roughly four hours after high water.

  3. It is likewise evident that some long distance race swimmers won't show clothing at any point in the near future (really, it profits long distance race swimmers to convey some fat as important protection against sub zero water). swimming pool maintenance

  4. Amazing visual presentations can be viewed as the LED and fiber optic lights move in shading and set the state of mind for a sentimental late-night swim or a clamoring patio slam. swimming pool tip[s

  5. Swimming exercises are usually thought to be essential amid summer when the climate is warm and many individuals need to go to the shoreline or a recreational office with swimming pools.pool services
