Ocean Drive development will commence 6th November 2017. North Foreland, Broadstairs - 14 Breathtaking Apartments.
A mixed residential scheme for 45 units.
A mixed residential scheme for 100 units.

With its vintage, family-friendly charm and its close connections with author Charles Dickens, Broadstairs has seen average property values surge by 10.45% in the last 12 months and has overtaken neighbouring Margate, which topped the league last year, according to research from Zoopla.


Margate was pushed into fifth place in this year’s study.


The property website analysed average property prices across Britain’s popular seaside locations over the last 12 months to find the strongest and weakest-performing coastal towns for 2017.


Southern England continues to dominate the rankings, with Walton-on-the-Naze, Sidmouth and Penzance following Broadstairs and seeing average property price increases of 9.43%, 7.51% and 6.99% respectively.


Blyth in Northumberland, a filming location for ITV’s detective drama Vera, bucked the trend as the only location in northern England to make the top 10. Average property prices there have grown by 5.64% since June 2016 to reach �130,566.


At the other end of the spectrum, Aberdeenshire’s Collieston and Cruden Bay came bottom of the league of house price movements, with average property prices falling by 4.79% over the past 12 months. Whitby followed closely behind with a 4.49% fall, along with North Berwick with a 4.41% decline.


Meanwhile, Port Isaac in Cornwall, a location for another popular TV series, Doc Martin, came fifth on Zoopla’s list of Britain’s priciest seaside towns. The average value of a home in Port Isaac was put at �388,620.



Property prices in Port Isaac have, however, fallen slightly since June 2016, by 0.13%, Zoopla found.


Salcombe in Devon continues to be the priciest place for a sea view, with average property prices at �635,435, Zoopla found.


Meanwhile, Saltcoats in Scotland was identified as the least expensive seaside location, with the average property there costing �110,761. It was followed by the bright lights of Blackpool, where the average home is valued at �120,239, Cleethorpes where the typical property is priced at �130,323 and Kilchattan Bay on the Isle of Bute in Scotland, where the average property price is put at �130,380.


Zoopla spokesman Lawrence Hall said: “With Broadstairs’ Dickensian history and proximity to London it’s easy to see why it tops the list of this year’s best-performing seaside hotspots.”


Here are the top 10 seaside hotspots in Britain in 2017, according to Zoopla, with the year-on-year percentage increase in property values and the average property value:


1. Broadstairs, Kent, 10.45%, �313,813
2. Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex, 9.43%, �231,410
3. Sidmouth, Devon, 7.51% �388,331
4. Penzance, Cornwall, 6.99%, �262,089
5. Margate, Kent, 6.86% �217,988
6. Falmouth, Cornwall, 6.49% �338,756
7. Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, 5.88% �218,125
8. Blyth, Northumberland, 5.64% �130,566
9. Newquay, Cornwall, 5.12%, �257,182
10. Southend-on-Sea, Essex, 4.89% �288,424

Here is a guide to the beaches in Kent that have earned the Blue Flag Award, which recognises the highest level of cleanliness and water quality across the world.


Joss Bay, Broadstairs
A popular sandy beach sheltered by steep chalk cliffs and backs onto the North Foreland golf course. Stretching for around 200 metres this is a great family beach with all the facilities close at hand. It's known as Kent's best-known surfing beach and is also an ideal starting point for coastal walks and bike rides.


Leysdown Beach, Leysdown-on-Sea, Isle of Sheppey
A long stretch of coarse sand backed by a wide promenade and sea defences. Access is via steps and ramps which are suitable for less able visitors.


Minis Bay, Birchington
Safe and secluded in a sandy bay with separate areas for swimming and water sports. Coastal cycle and walking routes are clearly marked at the entrance to the beach and it is also popular for windsurfing and kite-surfing while also being served by an open-top bus in summer.


Minster Leas Beach, Sheerness, Isle of Sheppey
The long sand and shingle beach in Sheerness provides distinctive and pleasant views, making the area popular with residents, dog walkers, day trippers and holiday makers alike.


Ramsgate Main Sands
A popular sandy beach surrounded by high chalk cliffs and adjacent to the picturesque Royal Harbour and Marina with plenty of options for ice cream and fish and chips. The beach is perfect for families with rides for children and clean safe bathing water.


Sheerness Beach, Sheerness, Isle of Sheppey
This predominantly shingle beach is characterised by a steep high sea wall with floodgates and ramps/steps at regular intervals. Steps lead down from the flat wide seaward promenade to the pebble beach. The seawall is bordered by a wide expanse of green open space which leads to the promenade - making it an ideal spot for a picnic.


St Mildred's Bay, Westgate-on-Sea
A small sandy beach adjacent to the seaside town of Westgate, within easy walking distance of Margate. The beach is backed by cliffs and a promenade and has a cafe/restaurant, beach chalets, deck chairs for hire and a tidal pool at the far end.


Stone Bay, Broadstairs
This pleasant sandy beach is backed by a promenade lined with beach huts, which leads into Broadstairs town. Behind the beach are high chalk cliffs which provide shelter from the breeze and a feeling of seclusion. The cliffs cast a shadow over parts of the beach as the sun dips in the late afternoon. Stone Bay is usually a quieter option than the town's main beach which can become very busy in the summer.


Tankerton Beach, Whitstable
An old fashioned shingle beach with wooden groynes and multi-coloured beach huts. The beach is backed by a promenade and gentle grassy slopes that are perfect for children to play on. At low tide, it is possible to walk right out to sea on a natural causeway known as 'The Street'. At this state of the tide, there is a fair bit of sand and a few rock pools are revealed.


West Bay, Westgate-on-Sea
A popular sandy beach in the seaside resort of Westgate-on-Sea. Chalk cliffs separate Westbay from the neighbouring St Mildred's Bay, and both beaches have seawalls and groynes to prevent flooding. There is plenty to do here with all the family along with some good rock pools worth exploring - it also provides an excellent place to watch the sunset.

Why Revello & Barletta really do make Super Homes...

Thanet has claimed more Blue Flags than any other district in the country for the third year in a row.

Seven beaches on the Isle scooped the coveted award this year, which is seen as the gold standard for beaches across the world.



Ramsgate Main Sands has reclaimed its Blue Flag, while Minnis Bay, West Bay, St Mildred's Bay, Botany Bay, Joss Bay and Stone Bay all retained their status from 2014.



Westbrook Bay lost its commendation from last year but instead received a Seaside Award, a prize which was also handed to Margate Main Sands and Viking Bay.



Director of Community Services, Larissa Reed, said: This is once again fantastic news for Thanet and really well deserved. Both the Blue Flag and Seaside Awards are quality marks for our beaches and mean those visiting them can be sure that they are clean and safe and meet the highest environmental standards, as well the tough bathing water quality standards.



Tourism is worth an impressive 286 million annually to Thanet's economy. Continuous recognition that our beaches are consistently achieving the highest accolade in the country is fantastic. Thanet joins a total of 140 beaches across England awarded with Blue Flags and 111 to receive a Seaside Award.



The Isles seven Blue Flags is only matched in the UK by the county of Cornwall.


Keep Britain Tidy's Coastal Award manager, Paul Todd, said: It is great to be able to celebrate another fantastic year for the Blue Flag and Seaside Awards. As an environmental charity, Keep Britain Tidy is committed to improving the quality of the places where people live, work and holiday and these winners have proved their commitment to providing the best possible beaches for locals and visitors alike.



The public can be sure if they visit a Blue Flag or Seaside Award winning beach, that they are visiting one of the best beaches in the world.
