Depending on the time of year, you'll often find the beach in Whitstable alive with tourists and locals alike, taking advantage of the spacious Whitstable seafront. The beach may be busy from local events and concerts being put on, or simply due to a blue sky and beaming sun.

A case in point is the Whitstable Oyster Festival, which sees the Whitstable beach bursting at the seams with visiting fans of the festival joining the cheery locals for beachfront celebrations in the summer sun. If you've yet to visit Whitstable during the Oyster Festival, then we strongly recommend you add it to your to-do list.
