Joss Bay is a beautiful spot, the beach is nice and sandy, and you have the white chalk cliffs of the Thanet Coast, Kings Gate near by. It is the longest chalk coast in England. It is beautiful, must visit. It was quite empty on our visit, but with such a lovely beach it must be very busy on a... More

Joss bay is a really pretty beach. We recently went down for a local festival, the beach was clean and full of people enjoying themselves. It's always clean & has great views.

This beach was desserted on a fabulously sunny wednesday. Nice clean sand but lacks amenities in my view.

Sheltered sandy beach ideal for couples and families with young children. Clean beach with no dogs allowed at any time. Lots for the kids to do,activities on the beach such as bouncy castle but also include the Joss Bay Surf Club. Good cafe on hand for ice cream and lunches. Joss Bay has lifeguards and designated swimming area.

Beach was clean, features a nice backdrop against the cliffs which make for excellent family photos. The sea was calm at the time we went so I was able to take my toddler into it for a splash around. Parking was also easy and free on the road leading to the entrance to the beach.

Nice sandy sheltered bay that wasn't too busy on a hot sunny day. Nice cafe which offered the standard burger and chips as well as ice creams and seaside essentials such as buckets and spades etc.
