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. The place was extremely busy too. If you live nearby, okay place to go spend an hour or so or go for a... 更多
Since its refurbishment city beach is a much more attractive place to visit. Although the attractions along city beach haven't changed, it feels a lot more visitor friendly, with added water fountains and multi coloured lights, children love it. It's a thriving busy part of a seaside town
The actual promenade walk adjacent to the sea is nice for a stroll, but the shops along there are the usual tacky arcades & take-aways. The beach itself isn't sand, but rough bits of shell/debris & rocks, along with washed up sanitary products!!! Being tidal, for 12hrs of the day its empty mud flats which are pretty ugly. Better to... 更多
The beach is generally kept clean and tidy, if you're local it's nice to visit early in the day or later in the evening when the tourists aren't swarming the place but on a sunny bank holiday it is absolutely packed with people from out of the area. The fountains on the seafront are great for the kids to cool... 更多
This beach is definitely worth a visit. Plenty of parking along the full length of the marine parade. If not park in the main town car parks and walk down to beach. Plenty of amusements, arcades and shops along the length of the beach area. Children love the water ground shoots, maybe take spare clothing! Recommend this beach.
Just a typical seaside promenade, with lots of food and drink outlets, slots and game machines. The beach is an ok one, just a shame that a number of people ignore the NO DOGS ALLOWED notices so be careful where you sit and walk.
Since its refurbishment city beach is now an attractive place to visit, lined with arcades, along with pubs and restaurants, with adventure island and the beach all in reach it is central seafront at its best. Also offers different events throughout the year for all round family fun
With the tide in there's a strip of pebbles that you can sit on, pretty hard on the feet and not much good for sand castles. When the tide's out there's mud and lots of it. The water fountains were fun. The area looks better in the evening with the bright lights of the businesses and arcades. The pier is... 更多
The most central beach in Southend, close to amusements, Kursaal and the town centre. Ive always found this part of the beach to have been kept clean.
