  • Love this place. The water is lovely, the atmosphere is joyful. Just make sure you bring flip flops for the beach as it is a pebbly one 👍 I recommend walking along the front until you reach the restaurant at the end of the line.
  • Great place for a coastal walk with wonderful views, a sunset in the evening. Sea on one side, fabulous houses on the other! You can walk from here into whitstable, where it is difficult and more expensive to park. Come and enjoy!
