Nice quiet little beach just 5 minutes walk from the main one. It's a great little place for those who don't want the crowded sights of the main beach. Lots of seashells on the beach and very peaceful.

We visited Westbrook after venturing out to the crazy golf. We had always assumed that it wasn't going to be much as it was out of the main Margate area - how wrong we were! it's literally only a 5 minute walk to the main sands and so much quieter! They have a cafe that was ok for tea and... More

We stayed in a flat directly opposite this beach and loved every moment looking out of the window at the changes in tide, ships passing by, wind farms in the distance, regular outdoor gym sessions, people on the rockpools collecting mussels. On a clear day, the sunsets are stunning! We also took the kids onto the beach early evening and... More

I don't know what it is but it captivates me to stand on the promenade or up on the pavement above and jsut look out to the ever changing seascape. It is very clean here also and tranquil.

This is a very relaxing beach. It doesn't seem to get as crowded as Margate and Westgate. There's sand and shells and some pebbles. There are rocks - so have some footwear handy. Cafe close by for the obligatory icecream and lolly or chips etc. We think it's great. Dogs allowed from end Sept (or before 8am or after 6pm)

If you want love the hustle and bustle of Margate for the shops, galleries, bars and nightlife but also want some quiet time on the beach Westbrook Bay is for you! A five minute walk along the coast takes you to a beautifully secluded sandy beach adorned with gorgeous beach huts in every shade of the rainbow. There's a small... More

Brilliant esplanade to walk along and push a wheelchair - nice and smooth for the wheelchair occupant, reasonably flat for the pusher. Long enough for good exercise, well kept, and fine, English beach to look at. Ice cream available at more than one point, toilets available and clean

We take our grandchildren down to the beach, they love it, easy to reach the water and the tide doesn't come right in to the wall, so kids can enjoy the pleasure all day, toilets and a cafe with a little shop for your buckets and spades etc. Easy access for wheelchairs.

Favourite beach and can park right on the front for free. No big cafe and away from the amusements of Margate making it a cheap day out for the kids.
