I know I live in the UK but I try to get to the coast at least 1 or 2 times a month. We have such a great coast line and it’s such a shame there so many people don’t use it. I say that but at the same time I like it that way because it’s much quieter for us who do.
Joss Bay is near Broadstairs in Kent and the main beach area is about 200 metres of soft sand. Perfect for kids. When the tide is out you can also walk round to Kings Bay which is the net cove. Don’t worry if the tide comes back in as there are steps off the beach from both bays.
