It's Official! Kent has the most Blue Flag Beaches in England! Thanet alone has Nine Blue Flags to boast about. A string of beautiful bays running from Ramsgate to Margate via Broadstairs afford perfect conditions for a wide variety of activities to please all ages. Stunning Botany Bay is the one with the awesome chalk stacks that has featured in Visit Kent advertisements. Others include Joss Bay - popular with surfers - Westbrook Bay with a designated area for water skiing and Minnis Bay which has sailing and windsurfing clubs.
There are quiet sandy stretches for relaxing and many rock-pools providing hours of entertainment for children. Other amusing diversions include donkey rides and a seawater lido at Margate Sands and endless opportunities for enjoying the wonderful birdlife that inhabits the cliffs and sea shore. Beyond Thanet, Herne Bay and Tankerton have been awarded Blue Flag status for the first time this year.
