Viking Bay is the central horseshoe shaped bay of Broadstairs. It offered surfing waves for the majority of the tide and was first surfed in the 1960’s. It is predominanetly as longboard surfing wave offering slow lefts and slightly faster right hand waves during mid to low and low to mid tide. During hidingtide, the wave turns into a beach break, and this is the time for shortboard and bodyboarders to excel.
The beach has lots of facilities including toilets, café, surf school, surf club, surf shop, and a car park.
