This is a lovely little bay. Very clean. Stood and watched waves crashing over the harbour wall very dramatic. Sands very clean children played and laughed. Beach is dog friendly. There are swings volley ball on the beach. Plenty of little cafe to have a drink and something to eat. Lovely pub with a veranda area that overlooks the bay.... More

The sand on this beach is soft and a wonderful colour. It also has a plank promenade on the beach so those with wheelchairs can enjoy the beach too. Also there is a play area for children. The promenade above the beach is great with a lovely gardens and plenty of benches to rest on.

Sheltered curved sandy beach with all the facilities needed to make a great family holiday. Plenty of sand to sit on at high tide, and a low tide rock pool for exploring with children.

This lovely sandy beach is one of our favourites along this coast! There's plenty to do and see for kids of all ages and no shortage of great local bars and restaurants. They don't call Broadstairs the Jewel in Thanet's crown for nothing!
