If you are staying in Whitstable, take a walk out of town to Tankerton and watch the kite surfers, weave in and out of the beach huts and eat oysters in the harbour.

We spent some time here, and enjoyed the clean pebbly beach. It was pretty quiet, and the kids enjoyed it. Lots of interesting beach huts too!

We attended a wedding at the Beacon House situated on the Tankerton seafront. The house was really charming and was a brilliant venue for a wedding. The beach itself is stony but is dog-friendly and was ideal for us since there were 6 dogs present.

Super chilled atmosphere, very family-friendly, beaches quiet (probably because they are sloped and shingle/seashell), you look out across the north kent coast, with the Isle of Sheppey, Whitstable and Herne Bay all visible.

A fantastic view over the Thames Estuary. Interesting to take in the views of the large offshore wind farm and passing sea traffic.

We turned up perfect time at low tide and got to walk out on beach. Spent about 2 hours. Then we cycled along the beach front to Herne Bay, nice and flat good for kids.
