Nice little Bar with friendly staff to sit and look at Margate sea front while enjoying a cold one. They lent me a pair of binoculars to really survey the landscape (but not in a stalker type way obviously)

The harbour arm starts at the Turner Contemporary and there is some parking there (£2.80 an hour). There are a couple of nice cafes and pubs and it is a nice place to sit and admire the view across to Margate whilst having a drink....More

If you're walking or cycling the Viking Trail anywhere between Reculver and Broadstairs, the Harbour Arms mini-pub makes an ideal stop off point for a beer or a coffee. Wonderful sea views across the harbour to the main sands and Dreamland.

Most of the arm is used for car parking that tend to wreck the atmosphere of it. The arm is a bit narrow for cars and people. However you do get good views of the town and sea.
