Located just to the east of Margate, Walpole Bay has a long sandy beach, which almost disappears at high tide. There’s a tidal pool and this is a safe place to swim, with a seasonal lifeguard service. Behind the beach are tall chalk cliffs and the short walk into Margate is flat and scenic. Watersports are popular here, with jet skis for hire. With a cafe and Games Centre near to the beach, you can also enjoy a round of crazy golf on the upper promenade. In short, you’re discreetly away from the town, but with plenty to enjoy.
