Continuing further on we crossed the imposing Kingsgate Castle, built in 1760, and then reached Kingsgate Bay, a picturesque beach surrounded by cliffs that act as a whispering wall, bouncing the echoes of waves from end to end. The northern end of the beach is marked by a wonderful arch that was cut off by the tides. Right after that, Jess Bay appears, a 200-metre cove that is a true surfer’s paradise, surrounded by golf courses. The bay is named afterJoss Snelling, a well-known local smuggler who was also presented to Queen Victoria as “The Famous Broadstairs Smuggler”. Further on are Stone Bay and Viking Bay where there are small wooden houses along the beach, in short, a good place to take photos and here, along one of the benches, we stopped for lunch with a beautiful view of the sea. Shortly after we traveled Louisa Bay until you get to the town of Broadstairs, a cluster of quirky little alleys, small stone houses and fishing cottages. Charles Dickens was a frequent visitor to the place whose sparkling air of the sea he loved and which gave him much inspiration for his novels.
