Not a particularly well known beach except to locals and does get a bit over run with dog walkers at times but a lovely sandy beach with plenty of room for everyone and during the season a handy beach bar/cafe

In Kent for the weekend, we were lucky to have warm sunshine and find this great dog-friendly beach. If the tide is right, you could walk all the way to Ramsgate, beneath the chalk cliffs dotted with little caves. Sam's café does great food, just...More

Having to rewrite this review ok... The beach itself is pleasant and more for the locals than tourists, as many aren't aware it exits!!! However it is over run with dog walkers, many of which allow aggressive dogs off the leads, which in turn attack...More

A lovely beach and bay where you can feel a sense of being a little bit away from it all whilst still being within easy reach of the main Broadstairs beach at Viking Bay. The little cafe can provide a welcome cuppa /snack

This is a very peaceful bay, there is a beach café and toilets. Great for getting away from the crowds.
