Such a lovely area. Steeped in history. Spent a very enjoyable day there looking at the Dickens history. If you're in Kent, I would highly reccommend visiting here

This sandy beach is lovely and is close to plenty of bars, restaurants and shops. There are better beaches at Botany Bay and Joss Bay, but given the locality of the amenities and facilities, this beach is tough to beat. It's a fantastic place to take kids and is highly recommended for families.

This is a quintessentially English beach. It is a horseshoe shape, quite small and with great yellow sand. There is a concrete seawater swimming pool at low tide. There are trampolines and amusements for children. There are beach huts. There is great ice cream (Morellis) near by. There is a harbour. There are seagulls and seaweed. No doubt there a... More

There's nowhere else in the world I would rather live. Plenty of lovely places to visit, but you just have to keep coming back. Whilst most visitors come in the summer, it's actually lovely in the winter too and the water sports actually get better (provided you get a wet suit!)

It's the beach you want to go to. It's lovely but only if you leave before the evening. It gets a lot of teens down there and they are not so great. Got everything you want when going out. Shops, cafe and hire. What more you want.

Having visited Broadstairs every few weeks since I was first born (over 30 years ago) I can honestly say it is home to my favourite beaches. That may be because it holds such fond memories of my family and childhood, but it also a proper sandy beach at Viking Bay, with all the local amenities you need at a British... More
