Brilliant golden sands which was an absolute pleasure to visit. Loads to do on the sands if you want to or it is big enough just to enjoy some sunbathing. Well worth the trip what a great place for a day trip 👍🏻

The sands are always good whatever time of year - the seas were wild and furious but hypnotic & wonderful with it snowing. Very exhilarating walking along it but great fun.

Margate’s main sand is the best best in the world, I’ve been to many beaches and this is most definitely the best one!
