Sarre is a village and civil parish in Thanet District in Kent, England. The village is a part of St. Nicholas at Wade ecclesiastical parish, It lost its local church of St. Giles in Elizabethan times and the ecclesiastical parishes were subsequently combined. In its own right Sarre is an "Ancient Parish". It had a population of 130 in the UK census of 2001.

Sarre is located at the point where the old 'Island Road' from Margate to Canterbury crossed the Wantsum Channel initially by a ferry and from the late Middle Ages by a bridge. The route of this bridge is followed by a short section of the modern A28 and is still marked on some maps as Sarre Wall.
