We walked along the entirety of this beach from Southend to Leigh. The walk is pleasant but the beach is unremarkable. There are toilets and one or two basic cafes. The beach is pebbles. The tide goes out a long way but there is a paddling pool nearby.

Met friends for lunch at Tides cafe today. Queued for about 15 minutes then waitress who was serving food came out and announced they were serving no more food as run out of bread and paninis - on a sunny day at lunchtime and why not announce before long queues. Enjoyable toasties in past but doubtful will return.

Well worth the five mile round trip from Southend, you could say Tides is a destination cafe! We had the chai lattes and two toasties and munched away watching everyone - and their dogs- taking a stroll. The food was lovely and service excellent! See you again soon!

Really enjoyed a stroll along the beach from here to Southend. Plenty of public toilets and shops for coffee etc. Watch tide times because the sea comes right up to the wall in places and when out is far out.

Beach was very good with public toilets. We visited in September 2020, the beach was good, a bit stony but there was sand. In the morning the tide was in, but by the evening it the sea was miles away. They have an open shallow salt water pool thing; once the tide was gone there was a pool area. Everyone was socially distanced and the public toilets were quite clean and maintained. If you get there early there is parking but midday is luck. Overall, very good.

One place the children always love to go is the beach & this one is well worth a visit. They can make sand castles or go exploring or have a paddle in the sea, they will love it.

If you choose the right time of day, and the weather is kind, this is a lovely place to walk and enjoy the seabirds, a rock pool, a clean beach. There is a calmness all around and make sure you wear good walking shoes as you will wander further than you plan.
