Margate Harbour Arm

Margates Harbour Arm is a lovely place to come for a walk it is south-facing therefore it is in the sun all day.
Come and see the beautiful views of the sea and the town. Enjoy a drink in the Lighthouse Bar, a Sandwich from Puffins or some of Jean’s fabulous cooking at BeBeached Café. Then you can workit off hiring a bike from Caitlin’s Beach Cruisers! In the summer it’s a busy, and interesting place to be indeed.
With a Cafe and Bar you can relax in the sun watching the sea swell in and out.  additionally there is a Harbour Arm Gallery where you can often see artists working in the studios. Finally the shell lady named after Mrs Booth stands at the end.
