This beach is nice and relaxing and can be quiet even in summer on a standard school day - perfect for parents with a day off to sit chill and enjoy the view of the sea :-)

It’s a lovely pebble beach, clean and wonderful views. We really enjoy long summer days and evenings, the sea is shallow even at high tide. Great sunsets to the west. Love Tankerton

This beach is a fantastic beach for people of all ages - kids, dogs and all. I really enjoyed walking along here and having a drink at the bubble cafe which overlooks the beach.

Lovely beach although it is pebbles. If your dog is good off the lead it is nice for them along the walkway and plenty of grass up the slopes.

Yes we rented one on the front row but you have to book in advance. You can’t hire them there on the day. Just do a search for whitstable beach hut hire & you’ll have your pick of ones to choose from!
