Stone Bay

Visit Stone Bay

Stone Bay is just south of Joss Bay on the Kent coast, near Broadstairs. This award winning Blue Flag beach is sandy and popular with families in the summer with small beach huts along the promenade.

The beach can be reached from either of two sets of steps down the cliffs or by walking along the promenade from Viking Bay. The East Cliff Promenade starts at the southern side the the bay.

Did you Know? Stone Bay was the setting for the John Buchan book ‘The 39 Steps’. It was made into the famous film, directed by Alfred Hitcock in 1935.

The area behind the beach is mainly residential, but Broadstairs Harbour is a short car ride south along the Eastern Esplanade.

Stone Bay is dog friendly in the winter, restricted during the holiday season from 1 May to 30 September.
