“One of the few places you can enjoy from the car”
Reviewed January 28, 2012

A winding little road leads down to Viking Bay. It is as picturesque and anywhere by the water in Kent with fishing boats and an excellent sandy beach.

Housesbuilt right on the beach makes it quaint too. That was the fit place in England to receive the news of Wellington's victory at Waterloo.

One plus is that you can park right there - for £1.10 for two hours.

“Cold sun”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

Broadstairs is cold and windy and sometimes very wet. But dawn and sunset over the grey sea can be inspiring.

“Beautiful beach”
Reviewed December 30, 2011

Viking bay is a wonderful bay, and very attractive all year around, although I like it best in the winter when the beach is deserted and the sea is rough with the waves crashing over the jetty. Beautiful!
