Hard to find a good sandy beach this time of year to walk your dog. Kingsgate is a lovely beach to do so. Very clean & hardly anyone on it. Just wished it was a bit longer but you can’t have it all! Highly recommend!

Surrounded by white cliffs and overlooked by a castle and a palladian mansion, Kingsgate Bay is a Sandy safe bathing treasure. No parking but there is a pub.

Dog friendly :) It was a lovely beach. I will go there again sometime. The beach was sandy and some some stones. My dog loved this beach and so did we.

This is an excellent beach for families to play. You are able to walk round to the stone arch in the cliffs, through it and out the other side. But, there are no loos and nowhere near to park. The next beaches up in both...More
