  • Looks good and very well used but only open for a very short time each year
  • Great fun! Large open air pool right on the sea front. Water is unheated, so rather chilly, but that's lovely on a hot summer day.
  • A very large outdoor pool with a smaller one for the kids. You occasionally have to share the water with seagulls. Very good value for money and well looked after.
  • A fantastic pool, friendly staff and you can bring your monster inflatable whale.
  • It was cold when we went, but lovely. It's a small promenade, and I can't judge on the facilities as I didnt use them. If you want a quick tip, and have the time, hang around for sunset. We were there just as the sun began to vanish behind Mersea Island. Lovely.
