Quieter bay than neighbouring Viking Bay, brilliant for pure beach fun with stunning views, we just stayed here for hours, sitting, swimming & relaxing with little walks to the rock pools.

Gorgeous little beach which I've frequented over my 19 years in Broadstairs, complete with the lovely Louisa Bay café. Perfect for a dip in the sea and sunning yourself!

At least twice a week I have a coffee here, often accompanied by a warm panini. Splendid views across the beach, especially good at low tide. Friendly staff, loyalty scheme and good breakfast and warm food options for location.

At the far end of Broadstairs, a nice clean sandy beach along the promenade. Lots of space but parking on the top of the cliff a little tight at times. Decent cafe for tea etc.

We visited on a wintry January day where it was cold but very sunny. The beach was busy with dog walkers but very clean and tidy. I'd definitely recommend a visit whatever time of year.

An off shoot of the main sands in Broadstairs,,, has a café here, steep hill to get to the beach, but you can walk the sea defence into Viking Bay. Parking can be an issue as on the edge of the towns sea front....This is a tidal bay so maybe no beach when the tide is in,
