Kingsgate Bay

Kingsgate Bay has  some of the best examples of sea caves in Thanet. The sandy bay offers calm and seclusion. While sand is exposed at high tide, the beach does get cut off by the sea at both ends.

  • Beach chalet hire
  • Public house nearby
  • Cafe/Restaurant nearby

This bay is dog-friendly all year round.

Kingsgate Bay has no lifeguard provision or public toilets, although you can walk (15 minutes) to adjacent Joss Bay or Botany Bay, where you'll find RNLI Lifeguard cover, as well as Public Toilets.

Be Beach Safe. This means checking the weather and the tides, keeping an eye on your family, and not using inflatables. 

In an emergency, call 999 for the Coastguard. 

Please remember, if you are visiting our beaches and bays, that some COVID-19 restrictions are still in place.

Please 'Respect, Protect and Enjoy' and leave only your footprints.
