Lovely coastline- great for walking & cycling, we're novices at 2 wheels, but love the wide walkway next to the sea.

Have enjoyed this perfect sandy beach since childhood and brought our own children here when small and still love it today. Quiet and non commercialised unlike neighbouring Margate. Lovely beach which is huge at low tide and very safe for children with school parties regularly...More

Wonderful sands, like all of the beaches around the Margate area. Great cafe, it's the one from the Humans TV series where Mia works. Saw a seal swimming in the bay when we were here.

A great beach, something for everyone - golden sand, rock pools, views, cafes close by and, just round the corner, a view all the way to Reculver and the setting sun.

I love further along in Westbrook Bay and you are allowed BBQs after 6 pm. I think it is the same all along this coast line.

I think it is, but only at certain times. I would suggest you check with Thanet Council first.
