Great bay, great views. loveley soft golden sand, nice cafe on the pier where you can sit and relax surrounded by the sea, you can see the many beach huts, people on the sand and the boats in the little harbour areas. Great place to relax.

I have been visiting Viking Bay at Broadstairs for many years. The beach is clean, sandy,sheltered and safe for children. A typical English seaside surrounded by narrow streets with shops selling traditional seaside goods. In recent years a number of good quality restaurants have opened.
