  • My wife and I spent a nice couple of hours here as it's so much quieter than Southend beach. We had an area of beach to ourselves, which was nice. The only issue was that at low tide the water was...  more »
  • I live in Shoebury, so I know East Beach well. I always wanted a beach hut, I never see the huts here used much at all - which is a great shame, so its great that one hut is now avaliable to hire in....  more »

  • Nice little beach , this was at low tide and there's no water apart from the kids pool. You have to get past sharp shells and shingle to get to the sand. Highly recommend beach shoes especially for kids. When the tide comes in, it's very fast. It's better to set up camp up on the grass if you have kids, rather than down on the beach as you'll have to move. There were guards doing the rounds advising people to move. There is no shade, no trees, bring an umbrella or mini pop up tent. The facilities let it down, the toilets were shocking. It would be nice to have an outside shower to rinse off and wash feet. Plenty of parking at a reasonable fee, disabled parking is free. There's a mobile snack bar and a few minutes walk away is a beach shop, bakery and local corner shop. All in all, quite a nice beach and the water was quite warm and clean, not too much seaweed.
  • Its a calming place to just chill with the family. But its all about what time I would recommend at 11am in the morning to see the beautiful ocean at it best, taking your kid to the beach and swimming in the ocean it could help young kids to learn to swim and most of all stand up paddle boarding, it might be hard but it is worth it to chill on top of the water and learn something new on the water. Enjoy your stay they its amazing and fun for everyone.
