Ramsgate's main beach is wonderful both at high and low tide ..... for bathing, walking, gazing out to see, observing birdlife or cloudscapes. This beach offers something for everyone.

My family loves a beach! This one is handy, clean and does the job; a real asset to the town and, on a sunny day with the crashing of the waves, you could be anywhere ... :-)

I have knocked a star off, as Ramsgate is not enjoying the same quality and maintenance that is sibling Margate does in the sands department.

This is the biggest and safest beach in the area. Plenty of space for kids to play on great sand whilst parents sunbathe, even when the tide is in. Very gentle slope to the sea.

A visit to Ramsgate Main Sands is always a joy. I almost grew up on this beach and am so pleased to see the number of visitors increasing each year. Clean, safe and enjoyable. Amenities are good, although the toilets are beginning to look tired. I would still recommend this to families looking for a break away from the city.

Thank BudgetUKTraveller
