We have been to this beach many times and it doesn't disappoint. It's clean and not too crowded. Even when the tide is in, there is a lot of beach left. There are no rides or amusements, so it's quieter than the main Margate beach which is about a 15 minute walk from Westbrook Bay. There is street parking on... More

We took 3 of our young granddaughters, aged 5,7and 8, there at the beginning of August as we had never been. The beach was clean and quiet despite being a really hot day. The sands were gently shelving so very safe for the children to go in the sea by themselves, also life guards on duty. None of the annoying... More

Clean sands, safe bathing (lifeguards on the beach), parking on the road (can mean a bit of a walk), Cafe & toilets. Everything you need for a traditional day on the beach! Only a short walk to Margate if you want to go for amusements, Dreamland etc. Recommended.

We walked from Margate along the Promenade. There are good views, a beach and crazy Golf. There is a cafe where you can get a drink and food.

Quieter than main sands, a short stroll along the promenade is worth it. Local beach. Dogs allowed on one part and this is respected. Clean. My favourite.

The natural amenities of this bay, close to Margate main sands but retaining its own character, make it a winner. The water is clean and has recently passed tests to prove it with the bay holding onto its coveted Blue Flag status. It is the archetypical bay for family experiences, even those that necessitate a windbreak although it was 'scorchio'... More

This beach has a guard on duty which is a must with young children. Sand on the beach, it's clean and the bay is tidal. Along the promenade is a cafe which is reasonably priced selling hot and cold food. Also there are toilets in the same complex a must with young children. On the beach area near the sea... More

First time to this beach, went with 2 year old granddaughter, she loved the beach, which was clean, life guards were very visible. Beach gently sloping, suitable for young ones. Will go again. Free to park

Nice little stretch of beach just a short walk along from the main Margate sands, easily accessible. There are toilets and a cafe for tea, coffee and snacks you can also pick up buckets and spades etc. if your little ones need them. The beach is kept clean and lifeguards are in situ if anyone gets into difficulty. Quieter than... More
