Cannot believe some of the filth that has been written on the shells of some crabs on the beach. Disgusting.

Lovely little seaside bay with a shop and toilets.
Great chalk cliffs and a lovely place to walk the dog.
Good on street parking at the top of the hill with a slightly difficult incline down to the beach.
Nice place to spend an afternoon at the seaside

We came here as part of our family walk into Broadstairs. The beach is perfect but the things that let Dumpton Gap down is the toilets. They are unbelievable awful. Please can something be done about this.

Roughly half way between Broadstairs and Ramsgate you come to Dumpton Gap. We had walked from Broadstairs along the beach but by the time we got to the gap the tide was coming in and so we had to go above the beach to finish our walk to Ramsgate. We were sad not to be able to continue as it looked a lovely sandy beach. At the bottom of the slope as we headed upwards there was a café which looked very popular.

I would like to warn people who have never been there like us. Be careful with the high tide!!! It does come in quickly, and when you realise it could be too late for you to go back!

We were enjoying the long beach walk with our dogs. Although we read about the high tide, knew what time the high tide was, we just carried on walking towards Ramsgate as the tide was still low. Then we noticed that the tide was coming in closer so decided to go back. However, on the way back, some parts were already under the sea water, knee high hence we had to carry our dogs in our arms. If we were 10 mins late to return, we couldn’t carry our dogs and could have been completely cut off! It could have been worse 😱

We wish there were some warning signs on the beach to remind people about the high tide. We didn’t see any signs!

The beach was a long sandy natural unspoiled beach. There were many people with dogs. We really enjoyed our walk with our dogs, and so they did.

I live in Broadstairs but it wasn't until lockdown that I started to visit Dumpton Gap beach regularly as it was much quieter than Viking Bay which is deservedly always busy I love that bea h

Being tidal the beach is very clean. it is dog friendly, but do check the tide ties before you set off. there is a concrete walkway if you get there a the wrong time but it is not the same as walking on the beach.

You can walk up to Ramsgate in one direction and Broadstairs in the other. Car parking fee on the road at the top. There is a seasonal cafe and toilets.

It is a great walk for the dog as she can go off the lead and meet dozens of other dogs. Often go for a paddle even in winter (in wellies obviously!)

Wow,so pleased this beach was recommended to us.
It is just a short walk from Broadstairs with on cliff top or on promenade. Also plenty of parking on clifftop.
When we visited the tide was out & we had a fabulous walk with our dog.
Lots of rock pools at low tide & the cliffs are fabulous.
Small little cafe at entrance to beach & their are also toilet facilities.
Our visit was perfect as the sun was out & hardly any other walkers.

Found the beach by accident as no free parking nearer the main beach, small beach with lots of rocks to explore(when tide is out). Small are for food drinks and icecreams, not busy at all and it was a hot day, about 20 people on the beach. We loved it here as did not want a busy beach. Only let down were the toilets, very old and not nice, also womens toilet was shut so had to use the men's with husband on guard. Could do with some more toilets down at beach level as toilets half way up a very steep slope from the beach,
