This is a cute little place in Whitstable and absolutely stunning. As this is a fishing village you truly realise it when visiting this area. Great place if the weather is good.

Charming waterfront, lots of restaurants and little shops,just absolutely charming. There are several companies doing boat trips, some to see the seals. If you enjoy seafood this is certainly the place to be, the famous oyster bay company is here and many more, cockles, whelks,...More

This is often a “go to” place for us and it just gets better all the time. More oyster bars, coffee outlets and craft sheds popping up all the time. Has a real buzz to it.

Interesting town with lots of little (non chain) shops plus a great area by the harbour with lots of opportunities to buy/eat fish and shell fish. If the weather is right there is also plenty to watch by the sea with wind surfers, boat etc.....More

I love this place. The little huts along the harbour front sell all sorts from trinkets to paintings and everything in between. There are a few good fish restaurants that are pretty busy and the fish market is a must if you are into sea...More

Its a calm and quiet beach for all generations. Sit and relax at the port benches, have some beer if you like and enjoy the sunset. All a human life needs is a peace of mind which you will get.

Yes it is, I have seen many people visiting with their dog. Although I do not know if you can allow your dog off the lead for a swim.
