Lovely walk, great amenities. Easy to walk to sea, plenty of sand and places to sit on breakers. It helped that it was a beautiful day too.

We chose to visit this beach specifically as it was dog friendly, however, what a disappointment! Although it was quite quiet, in comparison to the beach at Margate which was chocker, it was so smelly it was unbelievable! A dig friendly beach does not mean...More

This is a nice place to walk on the sands or take a swim or paddle with lots of sand and sea. When the tide is fully up is best to paddle. You can even bring the dogs here, but please clean up behind thanks.

Thanet has beaches beyond belief, the sort you would find in the carabean, minus the heat. But regardless there is something wonderfull about all sand beaches, and this one is a greast example of this.

I love cycling around the coast and Palm Bay is one of my favourite locations to cycle through. It has lovely views from on top of the cliffs and there is a secluded beach nearby.
