Brilliant little beach! The beach hut café is incredibly reasonably priced and the homemade cakes are fantastic (50p for a massive wedge). The “proper” café is just as good and great on a rainy day to sit and watch the bay whilst eating well.

I just love this beach. Old fashion family beach. At high tide we do lose the beach but when it is out lots of wild life to discover. The sunsets are beautiful. Even Turner the artist loved them

Lovely coastline- great for walking & cycling, we're novices at 2 wheels, but love the wide walkway next to the sea.

I have been visiting West Bay for many years and it is probably my most favourite place anywhere. The sunsets are absolutely stunning! Surely, it was here that Turner looked when he described the Thanet skies as the best in Europe! The bay itself is...More

I love further along in Westbrook Bay and you are allowed BBQs after 6 pm. I think it is the same all along this coast line.

I think it is, but only at certain times. I would suggest you check with Thanet Council first.
