Attraction Information

Botany Bay is a common name, this particular Botany Bay is at the foot of chalk cliffs halfway round the Isle of Thanet headland.

There's a wealth of seashells and chalky rock pools from crabs and starfish to piddocks and cuttlefish, so make sure you take a net, bucket and spade.

Local facilities include toilets, lost child centre, first aid post, a cafe and windbreaks for hire. There is parking on the cliff top.

The contact number is for the local tourist information centre.
