I can understand why its so busy - some great eateries, lovely views amazing fish. Only downside is it can feel a little crowded but its nothing like London for that

It is good to have a change of scenery from London and work from time to time. Nice for a day visit.

Whitstable Bay is a beautiful place if you want to spend some time walking along the seaside, eating sea food from local restaurants, or have a picnic with friends. Devote few hours just to relax, and do nothing!

Yes it is, I have seen many people visiting with their dog. Although I do not know if you can allow your dog off the lead for a swim.
