The beach is lovely and quiet with lots of little shells to collect and pools for the little ones to go nature hunting in.

I live near to this beach so I get to visit often. It's a much more peaceful beach than the main Southend on sea beach and is opposite to the train station and bus stop, so really easy to get to. The beach has plenty of parking spaces and has toilets, a BBQ area, a park and a little portable... More

Such a contrast To Southend Yes the tide does go out for a very long way. There is a car park very near the beach also adjoining the sand there is grass and seats to sit on. Public toilets nearby. Also not far to walk from the train station.

Seafront of Essex.. this is not bathing or swimming beach side. Just chilling area, mostly local families gathered, relaxed & enjoyed with their children. Some private cabins also there for couples relaxing !

One of my favourite places. Paddling pool when the tide is out, Bar-b-q area. Large grass area, childrens area, plenty of parking. It gives the kids freedom. The only draw back is the foreigners at weekend setting up portable bar-b-q,s anywhere so it can get smokey, smelly and dangerous for young children running around.

Monet loves the beach but not the water, she runs around having a really lovely time, the scenery is always great , there are plenty of dog waste bins as well.
