Such a surprise to find this area. Sandy beach with lovely facilities. You can walk or cycle to Herne Bay from here.

First visit since renovated and thought it was very good. The dining area wasn’t crowded but still had plenty of seating. The staff were friendly,helpful and efficient. The food was tasty,plentiful and quick. All adds to a revisiting in the near future.

Visited Minnis Bay and it is very special. Lovely walks along the cliffs and great panorama across the bay. Great place to blow away the cobwebs.
