Coopers Beach Holiday Park on Mersea Island is the perfect place to get away from it all. 

Whether you're a beach enthusiast or nature lover, you'll be in your element at Coopers Beach. With direct beach access from park, you'll have fun soaking up traditional seaside activities or walk along to Blackwater Esturary to watch the migrating birds. Either way, you'll find plenty of choice of attractions to visit nearby. 

On park, you'll find plenty of facilities and activities to keep the family entertained. Work up an appetite in the newly refurbished outdoor swimming pool before tucking into a tasty family meal at The Boathouse Bar & Restaurant while enjoying spectacular sea views. Head down to the beach for a evening walk or there’s even a boat launching facility if you fancy taking to the water.
