Stone Bay is where the locals go and they should know. Lovely location on a sunny day. Cafe for drinks etc, lifeguard patrolled. Can get very busy when the tide is in as the sea comes up a fair way and it's a hike down the cliff with an armful of stuff, worth it tho

For a traditional English beach close to Broadstairs. Facilities reasonable. No bars in close proximity. Perfect for families

Good place to get off your head, however there was a naked girl taking a piss on the sand. MORTAL! MORTAL! MORTAL! MORTAL!

This is the best beach in Broadstairs with a long sandy beach and the odd rock pool. Water quality is good and there are life guards on duty.

The nicest of the beaches in Broadstairs. Lovely long stretch of sand, rock pools and chalky cliffs. A few too many noisy ''beach hutter's on the promenade but the beach is wide enough to keep away from them

Stone Bay is quietly secluded, often ignored by the crowds who visit neighbouring Viking Bay mainly because they do not know it is there.

Stone bay is a more quiet child friendly beach. Be careful where you place yourself as the tide does come in quite far.

We had a week at Broadstairs staying in an appartment above Stone Bay. We barely used the car the whole week! Stone Bay is a lovely, sandy beach with a walking link to Viking Bay, both via the sand (when the tide is out!) and an esplanade. We met several beach hut owners who were very pleasant and welcoming.

A stunning beach for rock pooling and sunbathing and is also great for dog walking and strolls along the sandy beach. But it's not good for swimming as it's too rocky.
