Viking Bay and Loouisa Bay are actually in Broadstairs - the others are a bit away - and IIRC, Stone Bay doesn't have much there apart from a lovely beach. So a bit tricky if it's nto beach weather. But there's loads to do in the area if you've got a car.
Joss Bay is the best, in my opinion. But Minnis is lovely too.
Thanks Seeker! The reason I chose Stone Bay over Joss Bay was because it said that Stone Bay was very quiet, unlike Joss Bay. Joss Bay also has surf, so not so good for little DS. Do you know if Joss Bay has rockpools? That's another reason I thought Stone Bay would be good, because we love a bit of rockpooling!
I got the impression Stone Bay was walkable from Broadstairs because one cottage we saw said it was 2-3 mins walk from Stone Bay and 5 mins walk from Broadstairs town centre. Do you think that is creative time-keeping on the part of the advert then?!
I lobed the idea of being walking distance ot the beach, without having to worry about finding a parking space and so on. But maybe I should let that idea go.
