  • Drove down from london, first visit to this side of the country. The beach is easily accessible thats true, the marine parade parking is bang in front. Its a shingle beach and the water was very dirty...  read more »
  • Any town with a beach is just like this. Takeaways everywhere, slot machines, grab a teddy bear machine, fruit machines. The beach is clean but sort of sandy yet full off small stones. 
  • We went to the beach in Essex with friends to escape a few hours from the chaotic (but beautiful) London. For us Italians, the place is not great (because of morning low tide so not idyllic vision). For the locals is definitely a great place to take the kids and the family, because it is full of small restaurants and souvenir shops and ... packed-full of amusement arcades. I just don't get that much, but the company was spectacular. Tip: don't take the little train that runs through the long platform to go in the sea because, in my opinion, throw out 4 pt each to get to a restaurant and the view is wonderful and cute but not unless you love fishing I find it useless. I am maybe a little picky, but as our sea there is nothing!! Very nice playground Adventure Island if you have kids, but if you go on Saturday or Sunday, you will find it pretty full and the prices aren't exactly cheap. Very nice restaurants and I have to say the truth good fish, although too many restaurants carry on the sign "Italian cuisine" mahh ... .... Overall a cute place to go with family or friends (without being pretentious) for a few hours of entertainment.
