Visited Minnis Bay and it is very special. Lovely walks along the cliffs and great panorama across the bay. Great place to blow away the cobwebs.

Nice place, small rooms but no breakfast available. Parking on the street, a couple of eateries nearby. BnB lacked atmosphere but quite adequate just not my favourite.

If you drive right to the end and then walk along the prom it's Dog friendly, and is a great safe dog prom / beach walk.

Minnis Bay is a hidden gem in Thanet. Lovely Blue Flag beach, great for families. There is a cafe, restaurant and bike hire here.

We visited Minnis Bay on Bank holiday Monday and despite the hot weather and being a bank holiday we still found somewhere along the seafront to park, plenty of space on the beach and good food.

Minnis Bay is one of the best beaches I have ever visited. What a beautiful, clean beach. There are lifeguards on duty who are very vigilant and genuinely care about people's safety. The tide came in at about 1pm so we did have to leave...More

Yes you certainly can. It. Hold be on the grass buff above the beach or on the beach or on the concrete promenade,though you may have to dodge open beach huts and set up outside a closed one.
