We have enjoyed bathing and walking along this lovely beach - golden sands and skies that go on forever. Family friendly and plenty of space to spread out.

This is a lovely beach but there were lots of dogs being exercised, even though this is prohibited at this time of year. Who is enforcing local bye laws? Dog mess is a real health hazard, especially for children.

When the tide goes out there is more than enough space for everyone here. Plenty of sand and a gentle slope to the sea. Great for families for games and sunbathing.

A very pleasant golden sandy beach with superb views across to Pegwell Bay and the English Channel. Bonuses are the beautiful chalk cliffs with their wild flowers especially in the spring and the chine leading up to the Westcliff promenade.

After visiting Margate went to Ramsgate, another disappointment. A big improvement on Margate but sadly another resort that has fallen on hard times. A 'Royal' port it was of interest but enough to make me want to linger, so moved on to Broadstairs, what awaited me there?

Love this place. Beautiful beach and short walk to the Royal Harbour via the bars, cafes, vintage shops and galleries tucked in the arches along Military Parade. Lesser known hideaway on the western seafront in Ramsgate, providing views towards Pegwell & Sandwich nature reserve. Relatively quiet in the summer too.

Quiet, popular with fishermen and dog walkers. Small sandy shelf when tide is out. No public toilets until you reach cliff top up a steep winding path. Spoils the visit if you plan to stay for the day.
