A popular yet quiet sandy bay in a natural setting.

It is an ideal beach for families with safe bathing and plenty for children to explore. It got the name because of the common fate of captured smugglers who frequented it who were then deported in a convict ship to Botany Bay in Australia.

Broadstairs Botany Bay is adjacent to the Kent Coastline Walk and the Viking Coastal Trail.
