This magnificent horse shoe shaped bay is the main attraction in Broadstairs. The choice holiday destination of Charles Dickens, he even wrote an affectionate piece on the town, Our English Watering Place. The long sandy bay, cliff top promenade and boardwalk make this bay a timeless thing of beauty.

Excellent for the family with tidal pool, children’s rides and surf ski/belly boards. The surf school is open from March to October to try out water sports or for the visitors who want to relax there is deck chair and lounger hire available to sit and soak up the sun.

Seasonal lifeguards are on hand to make sure everyone is safe and has fun in the sun. With restaurants, cafes and bars in abundance in the town you won’t be short of places for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
