      Fab beach if you have a dog and young kids .
      Perfect beach for dog lovers. Usual dogs allowed means horrible, stoney and deserted but not the case at Dumpton Gap. So Brilliant to find a lovely sandy beach where our dog was allowed to swim freely and race up and down. He had his best day ever and so did the kids as nice and sandy for them and plenty of crabbing also.
      Good cafe, toilets and easy parking. Also nice walk into Broadstairs for tea. If you don’t like dogs then Dumpton Gap is not for you try Ramsgate or Broadstairs.
