Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside! If you’re looking for a traditional seaside experience with a modern edge - trampolines and SUP (Stand Up Paddleboarding) - then look no further than Joss Bay. The perfect Kent beach for families and daytrippers, Joss Bay has all of the facilities and amenities you could wish for.
One of Kent’s best beaches and located between Margate and Broadstairs, the 200 metre sandy bay is also the ideal pit-stop to enjoy an ice cream and a brief respite if you’re cycling or hiking the popular Viking Coastal Trail. Further afield than Broadstairs’ bustling Viking Bay, Joss Bay is located around a ten minute drive, or a 20 to 30 minute cycle from Broadstairs train station.
As well as Joss Bay Café, a locally run business serving drinks, hot food and sandwiches seasonally, a separate kiosk opens at busier times (bank holidays and school holidays) for ice cream. Buckets and spades, beach toys and beach accessories are also available.
Metered parking is also available in the large car park at the top of the slope which leads down to the beach See here for further parking information. The slope is accessible for wheelchairs and buggies but is reasonably steep. Toilets are also available and are found near to the top of the slope.
