The main Sands are as it says, a beautiful sandy beach. A brand new "stunning" Weatherspoons is due to open at the start of the Sands at the end of August. Parking is available nearby but you will find it cheaper to park in the nearby multi storey than on the seafront. If going on a Saturday then the multi... More

Our first day here and took in the beach. Sand everywhere and not a drop to drink. Great spot and good for a week off!

Nice beach with a short walk to the end but full of stones even though mostly sand which is very unusual but well served by nice café at one end and when the new Weatherspoons opens should be a major attraction

Not huge but big enough. No stones or pebbles and very well kept. You would need to watch the tide further up towards Broadstairs so you don't get caught out. Be prepared for either steps or a steep climb when leaving.

Quick stop off on the way home from margate just 20 minutes away in the car. Lovely sandy beach perfect for a walk on a sunny day. Right next to the harbour and close to the town. A lot of rubbish around on the beach let it down

Surprisingly to come across this beach. Tho right I heard of all the the Thanet beaches this one has no fame yet seems as sandy and wonderful as the rest. Cool little cafe kiosk nearby and when the new Weatherspoons open even though i don't drink I will go for the views alone. Clever Ramsgate. Pack them of to Joss... More
