“Seaside as it should be!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Viking Bay is one of the best beaches you are likely to find in the South East of England. We never tire of it's beautiful golden sand and the lovely safe family atmosphere it engenders. Broadstairs is seaside 'as it used to be' and Viking Bay is thoroughly 'in keeping'. If you haven't yet been, we recommend you do so ASAP.

A summer holiday in july and an autumn one in October you cannot beat going to friendly Broadstairs.The beach is clean and sandy and the rolling calm sea is a joy.There is always plenty going on all year and loads of restuarants,cafe's,and little shops.

“What the seaside should be about”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

Viking Bay is what a seaside holiday should be about. Sheltered (well, comparatively) waters and tons of sandy beaches. It's got a cafe and is overseen by the RNLI's superb beach lifeguards in summer. It's one of several bays around thi bit of Thanet, all of which are worth a butcher's.

We saw some hardy souls surfing, too. In late September and near dusk, that shows real commitment.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Beautiful clean sandy beach, everything you need is here. Nothing to dislike except the seagulls! The cafe is adequate. Lots for the children to do if they tire of sand castles and the sea. We love it here and will be back.
