The harbour is enjoyable and there is much to see. We had a nice walk here with our friends. You may find some places to eat, a lodge to rent or just look at some pitoresque scenes with fishing boates and people

After walking around the harbour, looking at the craft huts, having a coffee or eating, you could just sit and people watch and while away an hour or two. Listen to the weekend buskers who are very good.

We parked here using Ring Go to pay but got back to find we'd been given a ticket for failure to display a parking ticket! I have contested online & await the outcome.

It is an interesting mix of real fishing harbour, market huts and places to eat and drink. Great to stop for a drink on the front and watch the world go by.

We were staying at the nearby Hotel Continental and took the 10 minute walk to the harbour after breakfast. Very quaint, great sea food and lots of arts and crafts outlets. Well worth a stroll around Whitstable town too!

It is worth a visit here as it is a working harbour, lots of interesting things to see (and smell) and fish related items for sale. The RNLI has a working lifeboat here and a shop where you can get a tea or coffee at...More

Yes it is, I have seen many people visiting with their dog. Although I do not know if you can allow your dog off the lead for a swim.
