Clacton on Sea is the largest and busiest of the Essex Sunshine Coast’s resorts.  It boasts beautiful golden beaches, a fun-packed pier, exceptionally maintained seafront gardens, sea front kiosks, two theatres and pleasure flights.

This beach can also boast Blue Flag status which was regained this year.  The beach is gently shelving and benefits from a child safety wristband scheme to provide reassurance for parents.

The thriving town centre combines national chain stores with independent shops, the nearby factory shopping village offers designer labels at bargain prices.   A calendar of events (including a free two day Air Show) keep visitors entertained throughout the year.

Martello Bay is located approximately one mile from town centre and is adjacent to West Beach.
