Brilliant esplanade to walk along and push a wheelchair - nice and smooth for the wheelchair occupant, reasonably flat for the pusher. Long enough for good exercise, well kept, and fine, English beach to look at. Ice cream available at more than one point, toilets available and clean

We take our grandchildren down to the beach, they love it, easy to reach the water and the tide doesn't come right in to the wall, so kids can enjoy the pleasure all day, toilets and a cafe with a little shop for your buckets and spades etc. Easy access for wheelchairs.

Favourite beach and can park right on the front for free. No big cafe and away from the amusements of Margate making it a cheap day out for the kids.

I went to this beach with some of my friend and had a great time. The beach was very quite and peaceful. There is nearby parking and I spent a good few hours here with a picnic

beautiful beach, much calmer and quieter than Margate itself - and easy to park nearby. Excellent cafe - what's not to like?! (I was fortunate to have excellent weather too!)

Quieter than the main sands and more likely to be used by locals, this beach is among my favorites. Lifeguard station, refreshment hut, free toilets and West Bay Cafe all service this beach.

OK, no ice-cream parlours etc but easy parking and endless sand with which to help the kids build castles.

The view from the beach looks back along to Margate, with the Turner Gallery jutting out. This is a great beach for children, as it doesn't get too crowded, and the distance from the promenade wall to the sea isn't too far when the tide is in. Everything you may need is down there, a café that sells nice food... More

What a wonderful beach to grow up next to! Some fantastic memories here and the beach is spotless and much quieter than Margate Main Sands!
