Local Beaches

The beaches in East Kent are renowned and all pass the water quality test. We have both sandy or shingle and every beach has its own character. Here are just a few of our favourites.

Sandy Beaches

Viking Bay, Broadstairs CT10 1EU

Broadstairs Main Beach, bucket and spades, fish and chips, fresh-water pool with good crabbing at low tide. Morelli's for delicious (and not cheap) ice cream.

Botany Bay, Broadstairs CT10 3LG

Beautiful big bay with interesting rock formations, good low tide crabbing.

Joss Bay, Broadstairs CT10 3PG

Popular horseshoe shape bay, Surf Shack, kids play area. Can get packed in high season.

Minnis Bay, Birchington CT7 9QR

Long bay popular with dog walkers/cyclists on the cliff top. Loads of space at low tide. The Minnis Restaurant does a great Sunday Breakfast, free parking on the prom.

West Bay, Westgate CT8 8QG

Popular beach with locals, loads of sandy space, good crabbing at low tide. Grassed area on cliff good for playing at high tide. Only 1 Cafe. Great for watching sunsets, having a coffee.

St Mildred's Bay, Westgate CT8 8AU

Another locals beach, slightly busier than West Bay. 2 cafes (Pav's Cafe great sun trap).

Shingle Beaches

Tankerton Slopes CT5 2LQ

Great long prom and pastel coloured beach huts. Fish and Chips from Ossies or a snack at JoJos Cafe. Great for kite-flying.

Whitstable CT5 1AB

More popular for the harbour, shellfish and shopping, packed at weekends. Still lovely place to sit on the beach and watch the tourists stroll on the boardwalk.

Herne Bay CT6 6BA

Definitely ice cream, arcades and fish and chips atmosphere. Great kids playground on the prom and a helter skelter on the pier.
