Between Margate and Broadstairs, you’ll find Kingsgate Bay. This quiet, sandy beach framed is by monumental white chalk cliffs and sea arch and watched over by a handsome 18th-century castle. All in all, it makes for a walk you won’t soon forget.

The bay is entirely dog-friendly, so your pup can frolic in the waves or race across the sands to their heart’s content while you bask in the beauty of this secretive little beach.

The Captain Digby Inn is a short walk away, but sadly only allows dogs outside. However, perched on a cliff nearby is the Botany Bay Hotel, a hotel, bar and restaurant with dog-friendly rooms should you fancy staying.

Walk Length: 0.6km Difficulty: Easy Starting Point: Captain Digby pub Terrain: Beach, Sand Free Parking? No, there is a private car park at the hotel or customer parking at the Captain Digby
