A lovely seaside town
Member Name: barneyboo7766
Advantages: Sandy beaches and traditional town
Disadvantages: a little run down
This is a lovely seaside town in Thanet there is quite a lot to do in such a small town. There are lots of lovely restaurants ontop of the cliffs above the beach which have beautiful views looking out onto the sea. There is a good variety of cuisine although i thought there were rather more italian restaurants that any other. The town is quite small but has a good variety of shops my particular favourite is a sweet shop full of the old style jars where they sell 100g of any sweet including things like chewing nuts, peanut brittle wine gums tom thumb drops etc, I was in this shop for quite some time trying to choose!! There is a lovely sandy beach with a small mooring area for little boats but there is plenty of room for having a swim or just sitting on the beach enjoying the view!! The beach is also maned by a lifeguard during the summer months.
There are quite a few old antique shops in the town which are always quite interesting to have a look around.
At the top of the town there is a cafe/ice cream parlour caller morellies which sell the best ice cream floats i have tasted, this place has been open for donkeys years so they must be doing something right!!
Summary: A lovely place to visit well worth stopping to see
