This glorious meandering river valley down to the beach next to the 7 white cliffs ('sisters') is beautiful. You can get there on the 12 or 13 bus or go by car for the mile walk to the beach along the valley or alternatively walk to the sea on the West side of the river down from the Golden Galleon Pub where you can climbe the cliffs that give the iconic views back to the 7 sisters themselves. Highly recommended.
