The walk starts from the Naze Tower car park at the northern end of the town. The 18th century Hanoverian tower is situated at the start of the open area of the Naze. This attractive coastal headland is a great place for spotting migrating birds. You can enjoy a stroll around the reserve and climb to the top of the tower for great views over the area.

From the car park it's a short stroll down to the crag walk where the coastal defences have been put in place to protect against the cliff erosion in the area. After exploring the cliffs and the nature reserve you can then head south along the prom. There's a nice path along the beach which will take you to the pier, passing lots of little beach huts on the way. You could also take a detour from the front and visit Walton Mere where there's a nice lakeside footpath to try.
