If you’re looking for more thrills than paddling and sandcastles, the bay is an excellent place for water sports, with windsurfing and kiteboarding being popular choices. Bring along bikes and you’ll find the 3.75 mile section of the Viking Coastal Trail to Margate main sands is the perfect excuse to explore more of Thanet’s glorious coastline.

You’ll also find facilities for refreshments are always on hand with a picnic area, kiosk on the prom and restaurant.
