This is a much small bay than Viking with not so much going on. There is a café which was closed when we visited but not a great deal else to see. It may be nicer when the larger beach next door becomes too busy?

One of the 7 sandy bays around Broadstairs that are gently sloping to the sea so safer than many for children and has really nice café for drinks and paninis etc plus close to Broadstairs itself for cream teas and the usual fish and chips

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.
