Located between the ever popular Viking Bay and Stone Bay is East Cliff or St Mary’s Bay. The beach here is sandy with flat rocks around the low water mark. These are home to plenty of rock pools.

Running along the back of the beach is a promenade linking Broadstairs’ main beaches. It is also home to some colourful beach huts.
