Tell us what you think about Whitstable West Beach

A popular seaside town and shingle beach owned by the Whitstable Oyster Company. Good range of local shops, restaurants and a small harbour from which a local shellfishing fleet operates. The Neptune pub sits virtually on the beach, and is a nice spot for a pint and lunch.
