Shoebury East beach is approximately quarter of a mile long gently sloping sandy/shingle beach backed by a large grassy area perfect for picnics.
Can get very crowded on hot summer days and bank holidays.
East Beach is a popular beach for watersports, especially windsurfing and kitesurfing, due to its position on the estuary. The beach has a designated zone, but beware of tides, at low tide you may have more than 1 mile to walk out or back. Typically you are looking at about 90 minutes either side of high tide.
The beach is next to a MOD firing range.
Facilities include parking (some areas are seasonal), toilets, slipway, outside shower and beach zones help keep water users segregated.
No dogs are allowed on Southend beaches between 1st May and 30th September.
