Was so nice to find a beach that does not allow blooming dogs on, well done Southend council. Can enjoy a walk without fear of treading in something horrible.

Not much to do unfortunately, so not much to rate... Worth a wander if you are on the area a good walk from Leigh to Southend will take it in....

A nice clean beach. Popular in summer with families and great in winter for dog walkers. 2 coffee bars in the vicinity for light bites, coffees and ice creams etc

We found parking on the Ridgeway a short distance from Chalkwell railway station and the footbridge over the railway. According to the tide table we had just missed high tide, which meant that we didn't need to worry about settling down and then getting swamped....More
