On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Minnis Bay to Margate Harbour

From the rural surroundings of Minnis Bay this section follows the Thanet Coastal Path or the Viking Coastal Trail into the heart of the busy seaside town of Margate. Travel on foot or on a bike in either direction, mainly along the promenades, but at West Bay the route follows a cliff top road for a short way. Minnis Bay is a long sandy bay on the outskirts of Birchington, with extensive mussel beds and many of the eight bays along this section hold Seaside or Blue Flag awards, making this the perfect seaside walk with the family! Margate combines traditional and contemporary seaside attractions and amenities along the promenade and around the small harbour, including a an 18 hole mini-golf course right on the promenade. Watch the tides: The idea of walking from one bay to another may be appealing but ensure you don’t get cut off by the tide. High and Low tide information is often written at each beach by the Bay Inspector, or from www.portoframsgate.co.uk
