This part of the coast is just shingle (some sand) You wouldn’t describe it as pretty or interesting in any way. It faces 3 caravan parks and has no facilities.

Not the best of beaches. Very stoney and struggled to push a stroller through it. There’s better beaches around Clacton for families but it is aesthetically pleasing and would be good if you were taking children rock-pooling.

Very stonie and only sand when the tide went out, we went in July and there were lots of jelly fish. The beach was in need of tieding and quite a lot of weeds were there.
