This is a nice, clean looking bay with a large expanse of sand for the kids to play on. At one end there is a small paddling pool and rocks for crabbing. The bay also has a nice cafe and is patrolled by lifeguards.

Another great beach in the Margate area. Look for the remains of the Margate Salt Water Hospital just inland. Well worth a visit.

Apologies for the delay in responding. I have seen people have bbq's here in the day and evening and am not aware of any notices prohibiting it. It would be a lovely place for a bbq. I hope you enjoy.
