Kent has a relatively varied coast with; cliffs, marshes, estuaries, sandy beaches and much more. Each of these particular environments in affected in a different way by tidal movements. High tides have a strong connection with the potential for flooding in Kent. An estimated 400,000 people in the county live in a coastal district, which makes the tides very important to Kent as a whole and the coastal communities in particular.

As a general rule high tides affect; seagoing craft, activities in ports and harbours and even the enjoyment of holiday makers visiting the seaside. Particularly high tides can also have devastating effect on life and property when they lead to flooding. Kent enjoys the longest stretch of uninterrupted coastline in England, it is also one of the most diverse. In the North West we have the Thames Estuary with the saltwater/seawater habitat and much marshland. Thanet is in the North East and has a number of the county's most attractive sandy beaches. Now heading south towards Dover there are two large natural bays at Pegwell and Sandwich. Further on the shingle beaches of East Kent are now evident and the world famous cliffs serve as their backdrop.
