A Day At The Beach For Marygreen Manor Guests!

With summer upon us, we thought we’d have a little rundown of the top beach spots in Essex! While our summer may not be consistent, as Brits, we know only too well that a little rain doesn’t need to spoil a great day at the beach and with fantastic transport links from Marygreen Manor, including the M25, A12 and network rail from Brentwood itself, getting to the beach is now even easier. So let’s take a look at the best beaches in and around Essex, ideal for all Marygreen Manor guests to enjoy for the day…

Frinton-On-Sea – with stunning white sandy beaches, Frinton has put a lot of work into becoming a so-called uncommercialised beach. It’s doing everything possible to remain a quiet and family friendly resort and in doing so, has created a beautiful beach to take the kids or even enjoy a day without them for a little peace and quiet.

Southend-On-Sea– when you think of Southend-On-Sea, we know that the vast majority of people will automatically think of Peter Pan’s Island along with the seafront showered in ice cream filled shop fronts and they wouldn’t be wrong. This beach is a hub of fun and excitement for the family, offering something to do for everyone from a fun fair on the front to fish and chip shops and even a shopping centre close by too.

Clacton Beach – Clacton is no doubt famous amongst the older generation as the holiday hotspot from times gone by but it’s certainly not had its day. This fab beachside resort is the perfect location for a day trip. It’s considered the jewel in the crown of the Essex coast and we couldn’t agree more. Enjoy a taste of the classic British seaside in Clacton with amusement arcades, cafes and more.

Shoebury East Beach – while the vast majority of beaches in Southend will be made up predominantly of pebble, Shoebury East is a long and sandy beach, that enjoys a nice grassy area; very popular with the kids playing run outs and even more popular with those wanting to enjoy picnics on the beach itself.

Mersea Stone Beach – while it may not sound like the picturesque sandy beach we all know and love, Mersea stone (and pebble) beach along the eastern shore has been a very important part of the country for centuries. For those wanting a little history with their sightseeing, this is the perfect location.

Shoeburyness Beach – the sand and shingle beach of the famous Shoeburyness is backed by a promenade along with another large grassy area. Shoeburyness is also famous for its beautiful beach huts but for those visiting for the day, there’s also the famous Tom’s Café to while away the day, with good food and even better company.

Brightlingsea Beach – this is a sandy beach backed by a promenade with, once again, some truly stunning and might we add, colourful, beach huts. Brightlingsea was originally a fishing and shipbuilding area but it’s now a haven for yachting offering plenty of things to do for all ages.

Walton-On-The-Naze Beach – Walton-On-The-Naze has a beautiful and picturesque sandy beach. It’s also home to the second largest pier in Great Britain. For some, it’s the closest to Spain without having to hop on a plane. With various groynes and a couple of breakwaters, this beautiful location is a must see for those visiting Essex for the first time.

So there you have it. For all our guests, whether you’re staying for one night or ten, here at Marygreen Manor, we’ll steer you in the right direction of the best beach spots, and show you the best parts of Essex. Enjoy your beach days!
