This is the biggest and safest beach in the area. Plenty of space for kids to play on great sand whilst parents sunbathe, even when the tide is in. Very gentle slope to the sea.

A visit to Ramsgate Main Sands is always a joy. I almost grew up on this beach and am so pleased to see the number of visitors increasing each year. Clean, safe and enjoyable. Amenities are good, although the toilets are beginning to look tired....More

Very small beach area to the right of the harbour but the small café there is really good value with soft ice creams at £1.80 and tea from 80p and seems well run even in high season
