Dumpton Gap Beach
Despite the slightly less than appealing name Dumpton Gap is actually a nice little beach! The sandy bay here stretches for about 150 metres and is backed by a wide promenade which winds around the coast all the way to Louisa Bay.
If you fancy a walk in the opposite direction the beach connects with Ramsgate. However, be sure to check the tide as the beach all but disappears at high tide and you could find yourself cut off.
Being a little less central to Broadstairs or Ramsgate Dumpton Gap is generally a good get-away spot. Even so, there are still plenty of facilities here including beach huts, nearby cafes and toilets. It is also dog friendly all year around with no restrictions.

Dumpton Gap Beach Reviews
Fantastic beach for a family (dog included)day out
Tracy MSep 10th 2023
Sandy beach, little beachside cafe and nearby free parking. We had a lovely day out and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our French Bulldog absolutely loved having a splash in the water, made new doggie friends and has a sunbathe, along with the rest of us!
I would highly recommend this beach for the whole family. People of all ages seemed to be enjoying the sunshine, but it wasn’t too crowded and had a lovely atmosphere.
A lovely place
