"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Joss Bay Beach Weather and Tides

Situated below the North Foreland Lighthouse this is a lovely sandy beach in a natural setting. It is ideal for families with plenty for the children to explore. This is particularly popular for water sports with boards and wet suits available to hire from Joss Bay Surf School. The bay was named after Joss Snelling, the notorious smuggler and head of the Callis Court Gang, who was fined £100 for smuggling at the age of 89!

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
