"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Stone Bay Beach

Stone Bay is a small and peaceful sandy bay, surrounded by chalk cliffs and is lined with a promenade. A well-kept secret, the resort is seldom discovered by visitors and is an excellent spot for rock pooling and discovering local marine life. The beach is accessed from two sets of steps which lead down the cliffs, or by walking along the promenade from Viking Bay. It is famous for being the setting for the John Buchan book ‘The 39 Steps’, and is popular with both visitors and locals alike.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
