Shoebury East Beach

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 and has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
