If you’re looking for some seaside thrills, then Joss Bay is the place to go. Known as the best surfing beach in Thanet, beautiful Joss Bay even has its own surf school where you can hire boards and wet suits to take to the waves.

What’s more you can explore more of Thanet’s glorious sandy coastline by bike, taking on beach-hopping sections of the glorious 32 mile Viking Coastal Trail.

If you fancy taking it easy, you can always pull up a deckchair, soak up the views and enjoy refreshments from the café on the sands.

There is plenty space when the tide is in, but take care walking, as the beach will get cut off at both ends at high tide.

  • Toilets (Seasonal): Open from Monday 29th March (except when closed for cleaning).
  • Seasonal Lifeguards: RNLI daily Lifeguard cover from Saturday 29th May – Sunday 5th September, 10am-6pm.
  • Disabled access to the beach
  • Parking above the beach
  • No Dogs are allowed on this beach between 10am – 6pm, from 1st May until 30th September.

Please remember to check tide times for Joss Bay.
