I Promote Margate Ramsgate and Broadstairs towns of The Isle of Thanet plus it's wonderful sandy beaches and bays. I have a theory you can always count ten ships off the coast of Margate and Cliftonville. I test this theory as often as possible. KINGS STEPS MARGATE

Thanet iPhone app
Bay app is brilliant
As part of the Tourism service seaside
campaign, visitors wishing to discover Thanet’s beaches and bays,
can now get all the information they need – thanks to an amazing
new iphone app and ebrochure
The Thanet ’beaches and bays guide’ app is all
set to revolutionise the way that visitors learn about the area’s
local beach attractions. It’s also complemented by an online
‘ebrochure’ containing the same information, but designed for
In the past, Thanet District Council has
produced a dedicated, printed beaches and bays leaflet. But the app
and ebrochure recognise the way that people increasingly rely on
technology to access information.
Both the app and ebrochure are being promoted
via 25,000 postcards, and these will be distributed in August
through regional publications in Kent and Surrey, local businesses,
campaign with Tourism South East and our consumer eNewsletter.
Those who use the app and ebrochure can access
descriptions and facility details for each beach, a map showing
their location and information on things to do, such as sailing,
surfing and beach trips. Information on beach safety and advice on
the best beaches for family fun are also provided.
The app and ebrochure also contain dedicated
pages on the Thanet Coast Project and its events.
The council’s Cabinet Member for Tourism, Cllr
Iris Johnston said: “When we market Thanet, we always think of our
audience and the best way to access people.
“The iphone app and ebrochure offer exciting
new ways for us to remind everyone that Thanet has wonderful
beaches and bays with so much to offer. By making use of new
technology we can tap into the enthusiasm of a whole new generation
of potential visitors.
“The app and ebrochure have no geographical
boundaries, so their potential is enormous. I’m sure the app and
the ebrochure will both prove to be an amazing success.”
Anyone wishing to download the app simply has
to visit the App store online, and search for ‘beaches and bays
guide’. Alternatively they can click on the link/banner within the
