A sandy bay with rocky areas and cliffs.

The sand here is very good for building sandcastles and there are lots of little rock pools to explore. The cafe is open in the evening and is a great place to have a meal and watch the fantastic sunset views.

Westgate West Bay is adjacent to the Kent Coastline Walk and the Viking Coastal Trail.
