“Nice views, and most of the units are now in use”
Reviewed 22 December 2013

Had a short stretch of the legs after a wander around the Turner Gallery. It seems to be prospering - what were once closed up units are now businesses. I didn't try the cafe or pubs, but both looked worth future investigation. There's a small gallery, and a nice shell based statue at the end. Not an overly attractive Harbour, but far from ugly, and it's a good place to view the fabulous skies Margate is renowned for.

“Nice view”
Reviewed 14 October 2013 via mobile

You have some great places to choose to stop and eat or just drink Ifbyou wish. When you sit there you have lovely viewscof the old town and the new flood break looks good too.

“hidden gem.”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

Since the pier has had a facelift, it seems to be prospering. There are galleries, a restaurant, and 2 pubs, with the Lighthouse Bar, being the most inviting. Its great for an evening stroll, and even better for a spot of pier-jumping! Worth a walk.

“Best when Thanet Classics visit!”
Reviewed 9 August 2013

Four of Five times a year, normally on a Tuesday night, Thanet Classic car club descends onto the Harbour Arm. A perfect opportunity to see 30+ old vehicles.

A pretty enough walk, but if you're parking for the Turner, be careful..... parking is expensive at the best of times - and Margate operate dual pricing on the arm. Only a short walk away from one of the best fish and chip shops I know
