    Hello again Simon. I took 2 photos you can look at. One was taken on April 19, 2019 (sunrise). Then the other was taken on April 11, 2019. At the moment, both of them appear on the top line. I especially like the sunrise one.

    Been here since the 90's but thanks for the welcome! I usually tune in here in the morning Pacific time, so don't usually see the sunrises unless I play the time lapse.

    Also tuning in from west coast USA. Born and raised in Dover, and enjoy being able to see part of my home town when I turn on the pc in the morning. Not so much left of the beach as when I was a kid back in the 60's and 70's. You could swim down at the East Cliff end (now part of the eastern docks), and could walk underneath the Prince of Wales pier. Can't believe that Dover Harbour Board have deprived everyone of access to this great pier with the new developments. I always said they wouldn't be happy until the whole harbor out to the breakwater was filled in, paved over, and made a lorry park. They are getting there slowly. Only a small piece of beach to swim from these days it seems.James - hope you can get that moving camera one of these days - would be good to be able to see the castle sometimes. Cheers.

    Greetings everyone from the west coast of the USA! I enjoy very much this webcam. Thank you Dover Sea Safari for hosting it. Painting the picnic tables that bright blue was a terrific idea. Looking forward to the upcoming warmer weather so we can people watch. Hey, wave at the camera once in a while. By the way, I was in Dover in 1976. One morning while I was sitting on the bulkhead next to the beach overlooking the ocean, an elderly man walk by me. He was coming from town. He was dressed in a bathrobe. He briskly walk right down to the water, took off his robe and shoes, walked into the water and started swimming. It wasn't long before I noticed that he began swimming in a circle. I thought that was a bit odd until he came out of the water, he had only one arm. It's like when you're in a boat and rowing with one oar....you go in a circle. Boy, what grit that gentleman had going for an early morning swim in that cold cold water in the English Channel, and yes, in Dover. A special place to me.

    Love this cam, use it to see if view is clear before coming down to park on the cliffs. See the French coast with binoculars easy.

    Reinhard Holaus we have a new marina and pier area being constructed over the past 2.5yrs. At first (last yr) the beach was removed to install the pier sections. However just recently the beach was removed again so that divers could install anodes onto the steel piles which support the concrete pier sections. Work is now coming to an end and it should all be open late spring to early summer. Google search DWDR Dover and you'll see all about it :-)

    Thank you, James. - Also, can you please tell me what all this digging on the beach for months and months was good for? - Thanks!

    Reinhard Holaus we had storm force 10 winds which resulted in a few hours of travel chaos. The tugs would have been assisting with berthing.

    My mistake, then, Kip. I had thought that was it way up on the hill on the left. :) Not that you can see anything up there. Just making a joke. )
