The cafe here is just awful!! It's dirty, the staff are disinterested at best and rude at worst The beach is nice but without facilities you would be better off up the coast at the Main Sands

Nice quiet little beach just 5 minutes walk from the main one. It's a great little place for those who don't want the crowded sights of the main beach. Lots of seashells on the beach and very peaceful.

the high street can be a bit daunting but there are lots of very nice areas in margate. tell her to take the plunge she wont regret it and if she is renting she can move around till she finds somewhere that suits her.
