Palm Bay - Kent

Palm Bay is a pleasant sandy beach not too far away from Margate's town centre, between Walpole and Botany Bay. Despite its appeal, Palm Bay never seems to get as busy as the better known neighbouring beaches.

This is probably the best dog friendly beach in the area so expect to have a few pooches for company.

The eastern end of Palm Bay is also known as Forness Bay and is the home to Margate's water skiing club. The beach is also a popular launch spot for jet skis.
