Margate’s just one of those destinations that’s all about having a brilliant time together by the sea, and Westbrook Bay is one of the sandy beaches that have long made for happy days with buckets and spades. This sandy beach has pretty much everything you need to keep the kids happy on the beach all day, and when the sun’s shining bustles with activity as visitors set up camp on the sand for summer days.
Whether you go all out and hire a traditional beach hut for your stay, or you’re happy just to get yourself a deck chair for the day and sit back with that book you’ve been meaning to read, Westbrook’s a friendly, safe beach with plenty of space. Popular with swimmers, this one’s also a favourite for water skiing and windsurfing. Don’t worry if you’re happier on dry land, you’ll be able to stay on the sand and just watch the sporty folk do their thing out on the water.
There’s a seasonal dog ban at this beach, and you’ll find a café and restaurant nearby for those family meals during those long sunny days enjoying the coast.
