this is a lovely place to go for a walk, totally advise this if you can do it. Take your time for a walk, breath the fresh sea air and be amazed with the beautiful sea view.

Went for a walk along the promenade during a few days in Whitstable. On a lovely clear day in late April you can see across to the wind farm and Maunsell forts and walk to the end of the 'street', a sand spit which changes...More

Great beach water so clean and clear. Great that dogs were allowed. Owners and dogs well behaved and area so clean. Beach huts lovely to look at and owners friendly. Free parking and slopes clean and tidy and great for walking.

We spent a nice quiet time on the beach here. There is a cafe and toilets, all you need really. Tankerton Beach is not touristy at all, which is part of the charm. It's a pebbly beach and the tide goes out a long way....More

This is a lovely place to go for a walk. The further you get from Whitstable , the quieter it gets. Enjoy looking at the beach huts and wonder if you'll be able to save the £20k+ to buy one. Lots of dogs and bikes...More

We decided to go for a short walk after lunch near Whitstable beach. It's an easy walk as the path is flat, beware the bikes. The views are lovely including for me the forts and the wind farm. You can choose how far you are...More

After visiting Whitstable with its lovely shops and harbour we carried on to Tankerton Bay where it is much easier to park. Sitting on the grassy slopes or on the pebble beach - either is delightful and spacious. Best of all is we discovered a...More

Thanks for that. We took a chance and went anyway. Although not officially allowed after May 1st everyone was letting dogs run lose and all other dogs were very friendly to our nervous little soul. Lovely walk to Whitstable... More
