Impressive chalk sea stacks greet you on arrival at Botany Bay in Kent. The beach here is the most northerly of a cluster around well-to-do Broadstairs. The strand is mostly sand, with some shingle. Swimming is safe, with clean bathing water and a seasonal lifeguard service. At low tide, you can enjoy rock pooling. Just to the west is the artists’ enclave of Margate, so this area has a wide variety of visitor attractions.
