We love visiting Ramsgate and walking on the beach. However on my last visit I tried to approach a Community Policy Officer to ask where I could walk our dog. He was too busy talking to a local about something more important than doing his job. he was rude and officious and effectively told me to wait. I think it... More

The Esplanade, as I walked along it, showed promise, but upon closer inspection it was decrepit. The first thing that REALLY caught my eye was a WW1 garden, which I thought was a beautiful memorial.....but tho it might have been planted with good intentions, it is now overgrown with weeds. There were further rose gardens...which needed dead heading and weeding.... More

Went for the day in June for a sunbathe and lunch. Had to park by the harbour which was a hassle as the machine was broken and had to pay by mobile phone and card. Walked to the beach past some quirky restaurants and cafes and a fish and chip shop. Nice new sun loungers on the beach and there... More

Spent 4 nights in lovely apartment at 1 Granville Marina in early July. So disappointed that the backdrop to the main beach was so run down with an abandoned building site behind wooden hoardings and derelict pavilion. In spite of notices banning dogs on the beach the locals were allowing their dogs to roam on the beach and foul on... More

We really like this beach it's big and when the tide is out you can walk around to a little cove which is never busy. The main sands can get very busy so best avoided during peak season. There are many great places to eat, Peters being one place, fantastic fish and chips. The harbour is great with lots of... More

The sand has been put back on the beach and the place is looking lovely again. The lift down to the beach is operating again - make sure if you use this facility that you observe what time it will be closed as it can vary according to the cafe who care for it.

Only spent a short while here and Ramsgate had a music event on which meant the beach had loads of drinkers and littered the place. least i got some chips and ate them looking at the beach. If it wasn't for that, it's a nice beach, you can buy coffee/drinks/food very near to it.
