Joss Bay Beach Info
Joss Bay beach in Broadstairs, Kent is a 200m sandy beach sheltered by large white chalk cliffs below the North Foreland Lighthouse and is just one of the Seven Broadstairs Bays, Joss Bay is known as the home of Kent surfing and one of the most popular South East England surf spots.
The beach is popular with families and not just surfers and due to being close to Broadstairs can get crowded. The flat rocks at the end of the beach can provide hours of exploration for the kids.
The bay was named after an 18th-century smuggler called Joss Snelling and is one of the seven bays in Broadstairs.
Activity wise, we have talked about surfing but kitesurfing is a struggle due to the cliffs behind the beach and the number of summer visitors.
Facilities at the beach include surf school and surf/kayak hire facilities, toilets, cafe/restaurant, shops, deck chair/ windbreak hire, car parking, lifeguards in summer months, disabled access, seasonal children play area.
Joss Bay beach does not allow dogs from 15th May to 15th September 10 am to 6 pm.
