Spaceous stony beach with a big horizon

A great spot for anyone looking for some space (depending on the day/time you go) and ideal location for a (responsible) beach barbeque. There is a toll charge to visit during the... read more

This beach is so long that we could easily find part of it all to ourselves. The weather comes in quickly though so be prepared for everything.

We followed the sat nav to a beach to walk our dog for half an hour or so. We arrived at the toll late afternoon and were asked for £7.!! We were shocked to say the least as we just wanted a short time on the beach. We were told this was private property. It was implied they could charge... More

If you want a quiet, peaceful afternoon, away from all the hustle and bustle of other beaches, then this is the place to go. Lovely scenery, a stroll past the bird observatory and a quiet, secluded beach.

After paying a man to enter the bay estate you can then head towards the beach via passing some impressive dwellings. The beach is good with plenty of sand showing at low tide. If paddling is your bag expect a long walk to the surf. Now if your a fishing bod leave your rod in the car as there is... More

I was quietly surprised by this wonderful space very peaceful place. not many people and a huge shingle beach landscape that s very expansive. I was surprised by the toll charge of 7 pounds, but definitely worth if for the serenity and surroundings.

I read a bad review insulting the staff on the tolls of sandwich bay beach and I totally disagree! Malcolm & Andy are 2 lovely guys who don't deserve the abuse they sometimes get, they are only doing a job after all. The beach is absolutely beautiful, with stunning views of Ramsgate. It's a very clean beach and dog friendly... More

Have been coming here since I was a child, and now come with my children. There is a toll of £7.00, which is very good. You are able to drive onto the beach and park for the day. Dog came too. It is a stoney beach. The water was great. You need to bring everything with you as there are... More

A great spot for anyone looking for some space (depending on the day/time you go) and ideal location for a (responsible) beach barbeque. There is a toll charge to visit during the day but access is free in the evenings after the booths shut. You can get here either from Sandwich (beyond St Georges Golf Club) or from Deal on... More

We visited sandwich bay recently and was very disappointed at the ridiculous fee to pay just to get to the beach! It is not clearly stated that a whopping £7 would have to be paid to use the road that leads to the bay! Once there it is lovely and quite but if you haven't got much to carry then... More
