Situated below the North Foreland Lighthouse this is a lovely sandy beach in a natural setting.

It is ideal for families with plenty for the children to explore. This is particularly popular for water sports with boards and wet suits available to hire from Joss Bay Surf School. The bay was named after Joss Snelling, the notorious smuggler and head of the Callis Court Gang, who was fined £100 for smuggling at the age of 89!

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