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.

Nice clean beach, a lot of dog walkers and a lot of seaweed, but good for the fresh air sea smell. Good for a swim too when its a bit warmer, the sea come right up to the concrete.

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.

This is a lovely beach, clean and interesting with the caves. Great place to get away from the crowds. Nearby there is two cafe's (within 200meters), tesco metro(within 1/2 mile), Escape room game (near lido).

A nice beach along the coastal walk. The grandchildren enjoyed playing cricket on the beach. Not as much seaweed as Margate beach.

Great place for a long walk and if you have a dog then you can go there all year round. Our little dog loved being on this beach and walking all along the esplanade. Love it!!!
