It looks serene in the cloudy winter months, but during the high season, Botany Bay beach is very popular with many water sports enthusiasts. Located only one-hour drive from London, the attraction is one of the seven Broadstairs bays where paddle boarding and sea-kayaking offer a great way to unwind. Other activities are also available, and the beach is life-guarded during the summer months.

Some hazards are present though, such as tidal cut-off, strong winds and deep shelving. Jet skis and motor crafts are prohibited, and dogs are not allowed between 1st of May and 30th September.
