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.
Shoebury East Beach is a Blue Flag Beach.
No dogs are allowed on Southend beaches between 1st May and 30th September.
