Margate main sands is a lovely beach which attracts the day trippers with its proximity to the railway station. However, just around the corner, you can get to it by walking along the prom, or there is a lot of parking spaces available above the beach. Beautiful sands, the sea comes up near the beach and when the tide turns... More

I live less than one minute's walk from Westbrook Bay and count myself very lucky indeed. The sandy beach is clean and generally free from the type of tourist rubbish that collects on Margate's main sands. The bonus for parents is that there are no swings, roundabouts or other money eating attractions. Just lovely a beach, shallow water to paddle... More

Westbrook is fab. Used to have my beach hut there and many happy memories of years gone by. Great for families great for everyone. Only downside if it's high tide everyone has to pile onto the proms and it gets very crowded. The cafe is great and it's fun toms it outside with the waves lapping near by. It's diverse... More

This time of year we visit with our daughter wrap up warm and find shells, however we visit all year round and in the summer its a busy beach, there are loos free parking and a cafe. It's always clean and there is a life guard in season.

A very peaceful place to relax and chill out. Quiet and plenty of parking. The place suited by need for solitude.

Visited as a group, the kids had an exceptionally good time, picking shells, seaweed, the tide came in quite early so it was a rush for the kids. Neat surroundings and good location. You may want to go along wit your beach gear, as we didn't get any to rent!

Just a bit gutted that the beach is on here - it's been a lovely quiet beach for years away from the crowds. We love it, and come as much as we can
