    Hi Hannah
    Not 100% sure where it is but think it near Margate looking at the pics at www.jossbay.co.uk I see a coach and vans near the beach.
    Found this as well

    Joss Bay is a sandy beach backed by low cliffs with rocks at either end of the break. Primarily a surfing break when its working, there is some localism where surfing is concerned.

    This spot is located just outside the town of Broadstairs on the coastal road towards botany bay and Margate. It is marked by a huge lighthouse on the hill overlooking the spot.

    Because of the cliffs behind the beach, the suitability for kite surfing is reduced.
    During the summer, the beach can get packed, which makes surfing hazzardous, but there is only any real surf from late aug to april.
    Lifeguards are only on duty during the summer, in the winter they are usually surfing.

    There are signposted coastal walks or cycle rides from the beach.

    Pay and display parking for 200 cars is available.

    Also saw this address Joss Bay

    Joss Gap Road, Broadstairs, Kent, CT10 3PG

    many thanks for all your help. i have just phoned the tourist information for thanet and what excellent customer service. apparently there is no height barriers and no marked spaces so no worries about taking up two. you are also able to park on the grass so even better in a motorhome in the lovely sunny weather and eat our lunch right outside the van. the young lady also rang me back to warn me they occasionally had a guy walking round in a high vis jacket claiming you had to pay extra for parking. she has warned me not to. the only payment needed is from the machine. what great customer service. will post back in a few days and let you know what its like
