“Superb sandy beach”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Long, clean sandy beach with ever-changing vistas. Offers easy access to great selection of bars and restaurants at the town end ; head north at low tide for Broadstairs via rock pools and snow-white cliffs.

“Construction.”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

The beach was fantastic, seems to go for miles. Lovely pier you can walk along, allows you to look at the harbour on one side and the full stretch of beach on the other.
Its just a shame that there is construction work ongoing the full length of the promenade which the locals tell me has been ongoing for TEN YEARS!!!

“Best beach in Thanet”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Im always down here in the summer and always enjoy myself each time. Its great to just chill with mates and soak up the sun, other beaches in Thanet are lovely but this one is the best as there is the harbour there too. Scenery is to die for if ever I move out of this place I know I'll come back, step off into Ramsgate and head straight for the beach in the summer with a nice ice cream and good laughs with family and friends.
