Perched on the Medway, Grain is the final stop at the end of a long peninsula.
Grain Beach is located along the B2001 (Grain Road), at the far end of the High Street.
At this point, there is a car park only yards from a path that leads down to the beach or, if feeling more adventurous, around the site of the old Grain Fort.
Beyond that, there are long walks along sea walls, with views to Sheerness and, in the middle of River Medway, the Grain Tower Battery.
On the beach, and depending on what the weather is like, there are some good views of Shoeburyness and Southend-on-Sea across the mouth of the Thames.
Grain has many beautiful countryside walks. There are plenty of breathtaking views of the sea to be seen from the Hoo coast, and Grain still has the remains of its old sea fort on show.
Friends of Grain Coastal Park are a team of volunteers helping to protect and enhance our natural surroundings by looking after the coastal park and foreshore in the Isle of Grain. The group consists of volunteers who meet every third Saturday to enhance, maintain and clean the coastal park. We also meet midweek if members are available. We clear and create paths, trim hedges and bushes and conduct tree maintenance. Litter picking is an ongoing task.
We appreciate all help volunteered and would welcome more members to join our team.
