Coastguard spokesman Andy Nye said: “They were on the bottom of the cliff, they’d climbed up so they were out of the water.
“They were all okay, not cold or wet.
“It looked like they had just been walking and got cut off by the tide.
“They were transported back to the lifeboat station in Walmer, arriving at 10pm.”
Mr Nye added: “If anybody is going to go down to the bottom of the cliffs, from Kingsdown Riffle Range all the way to Folkestone, I would suggest they get in touch with the coastguard beforehand to check the tide times.
“Also, be safe, because a lot of the cliff is starting to crumble, even though it’s summer."
