    Botany Bay Beach Information

    Botany Bay is an old fashioned sandy beach ideal to keep the family entertained. The beach is almost 200m long with chalk cliffs and stacks, rock pools to explore and gentle swimming conditions. This part of the Kent coast boasts the longest stretch of chalk cliffs in Britain with Botany Bay being the northern most of seven bays in Broadstairs.

    When the tide goes out you have a chalk reef which is thought to be one of the best in Britain. You can also navigate around chalk stacks to Kingsgate Bay but be aware that as the tide comes in the ends of the beaches get cut-off and so you may have to walk back along the cliff path.

    Facilities include toilets, seasonal kiosk (hot and cold food), disabled access, deck chairs, windbreak hire, lifeguards in summer months and parking.

    Botany Bay Beach is a Blue Flag Beach.

    Botany Bay Beach has dog restrictions. Botany Bay beach has dog restrictions between 1st May and 30th September where dogs are not allowed on the beach between 10am to 6pm.
