6 reviews of margate sands in English
Bucket and spade lovers have more to celebrate as a whole host of Thanet beaches continue to win accolades for their quality.
In fact they have just received more Blue Flag awards for its beaches than any council area in the UK.
And that’s on top of the 10 just recognised by the Good Beach Guide.
The Blue Flags are known across the world as a symbol of top quality when it comes to the condition of the water.
Thanet has just got nine of them for Minnis Bay, Margate Main Sands, Ramsgate Main Sands, St Mildred’s Bay, Stone Bay, West Bay, Joss Bay, Botany Bay, and Westbrook Bay.
It means they have achieved the highest quality in water, facilities, safety, environmental education and management.
Arrived on the coach with a glorious sun covering the sky, a recipe for a successful holiday. Suit case in hand, itching to change into something appropriate for a dip in the inviting clear blue water. Margate is the epitome of British seaside, with a stretching landscape of white sand and coves within viewing distance. The fresh smell of the air invigorated my lungs as I aimed to explore this wonderful beach in Margate.
Swimming in the waters of Margate filled me with awe at the wonders of God, the sea.
I have to say I disagree with the view that this beach is fantastic. Maybe about 20 years ago but now every time we’ve gone there it’s been over run with horrid black bitey flies which get into everything including the underwear. So we’re giving this a miss better off driving 5 miles to Broadstairs and it’s lovely beach
Main margate beach is a nice inexpensive place to take the kids on a day out. A large sandy beach, with a small fun fair area in the summer, and a cafe/ice-cream parlour almost in the middle of it. It also has a “boating lake” although i’ve not seen many boats on it! All the arcades lining the prom just opposite may be a slight problem, but they are fun to go and spend a few pennys and theres a few little beach shops around the area too for buckets, spades and kiss me quick hats.
Margate has a lovely beach so it’s such a shame it’s fallen into decay!
I remember visiting the seaside at Margate when I was 7 years old. The place was so different then. Dreamland was still a vibrant, succesful themepark with all its rides and arcades, their were still quite a few shops open there that are now all shut and boarded up, and of course all the arcades were open.
With time the shops have shut, the themepark has gone and the most poignant part of Margate, the reknowned wooden rollercoaster burnt down. The arcades are still there but it seems to have lost its heart. However it’s still popular during the summer as many flock to the beach for sunbathing and relaxing. There are many pubs and eating areas, with a number of clubs that are also quite popular.
