Good spot for beginner kayakers. Lots of kiters when windy but sheltered and usually quite safe. As Barney says the slipway high tide put in can be tricky with shore dump etc. Still a good spot that gets busy in summer. Really close to Margate so lots of traffic. Can be a nightmare to park in summer.

Paddle from here quite often. Easy launch and sheltered from any major swell until you leave protection of bay. Great place to start exploring turn left for Reculver or right for Margate. On a spring high tide the sea covers the entire beach so it's a launch from the slipway, the return to the slipway be quite tricky as you will pushed off slipway by wave action as you attempt to get onto it. :)
