With COVID rules constantly changing, many people are finding themselves stuck abroad, or being unable to leave the country in the first place. Rules on testing are confusing for many people and add a layer of stress to your holiday plans. The possibility of red, amber, and green list countries changing at any moment, potentially resulting in the need to quarantine is an added weight which can disrupt your well-earned time off.

To add to the quarantine conundrum, the testing process is difficult and costly. PCR and lateral flow tests are an extra cost on top of your holiday but if you go on a staycation then you wouldn’t need to be tested for the virus. If you want to be cautious on your UK travels, free testing kits can be ordered from the government website with delivery in a matter of days! A lot easier than dealing with these abroad affairs!

The Beaches of Broadstairs:

Viking Bay: This beach is truly the main attraction in Broadstairs. With a long sandy beach, and promenade this beach is guaranteed to be a beauty. There’s also the opportunity to try out surfing as the surf school is open from March till October, they offer a range of water sports and is great fun whether you’re a novice or are at one with the waves.

Joss Bay: This gorgeous sandy beach is a surfer’s dream, known to be Thanet’s best surfing beach. There is a café and a striking view of the white cliffs. It’s in a great area, surrounded by fields, so is a great place for a countryside walk, and only a ten-minute walk to the North Foreland Lighthouse.

Botany Bay: Famous for its beautiful chalk stacks, Botany Bay is a fantastic opportunity for keen photographers to capture a striking sunrise. This bay is also a great location for rock pooling as when the tide goes out it exposes stretches of sandy beaches and rock pools. It really is the perfect place for an evening stroll on the beach.
