"Margate is happening!" Margate by VickyCarpenter

Margate Travel Guide: 13 reviews and 16 photos

In season

In seaon Margate fills up with thousands of visitors. Many from Gauteng (SA), and many other international tourists. During season there are many street paries and Mardi Gras!

Backline, and Bourbon Street are the most popular night clubs, and the new Mugg & Bean on the beachfront is very nice place to chill.

Out of season

Out of season, Margate is also a very nice place to go. Local are very friendly, and prices are far more resonable out of season. Life is very slow, and relaxed which makes for a great break from city hustle and bustle.

The weather is great all year round. Humidity is high, but not extreme.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:mile long blue flag beach, fun & lively in season, quiet get-a-way out of season

  • In a nutshell:great fun, lively holiday, clean beach, Margate!
