Turn Kent’s coastline into your very own outdoor gym

Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate, Kent

Discover chalk rock pools teaming with marine life, enjoy seal trips, coastal walks and promenade cycling or hit the waves with your surfboard.

At Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate, there’s so much more to Kent’s coastline than building sandcastles, peering into rock pools and taking waterside strolls.

You can learn to surf at one of Kent's best beaches, Joss Bay, with the help of the surf school or head to Broadstairs Viking Bay with your surfboard.

If you prefer, go windsurfing, sailing, kitesurfing or hiking along the iconic shore. Play beach volleyball, swing a mini-golf club or hop in a RIB to visit a seal colony from the only Royal Harbour in England.

One of the most attractive cycle touring routes in Kent, the 32-mile long Viking Coastal Trail takes in Thanet’s entire shore. And with Active Ramsgate, you can discover more on one of three coastal walks, go geocaching to see what treasures you uncover or try canoeing.
