This lovely sandy beach is one of our favourites along this coast! There's plenty to do and see for kids of all ages and no shortage of great local bars and restaurants. They don't call Broadstairs the Jewel in Thanet's crown for nothing!

Viking beach is really nice beach! The little town is also nice with plenty of little cafés! The beach itself is clean, unfortunately tide was low and weather wasn't good for a dip!

Lovely sandy bay with easy access to coffee, food, drinks, ice cream and toilets. Children and parents will love it. A great place for friends to relax and chill.

We took our 6 month old to Viking Bay to wiggle her toes in the sand. It's a lovely beach with nice places to eat - there are some little shops dotted around too. I think we may have found our new summer spot!

Great sandy beach for my 2 boys - location enhanced by having delightful Broadstairs surrounding the bay

It is a nice little bay - not extremely touristic. Fortunately Broadstairs has not changed into a massive tourist trap. The town itself could be cleaner en more cosy tough.

Lovely day out. Everything you need for a day at the seaside. Toilets at Victoria park nicer than the ones at the other end of the bay. Will definitely be returning to Viking bay!
