Thorpe Bay has received a Blue Flag and Quality Coast award for achieving excellence in beach cleanliness and for safe pedestrian access. It's home to The Beach Club, the place to go for sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and many other watersports.

With spectacular views of Thames estuary it is a great place for refreshing walks and for those looking for a relaxing break. Wander past the picture-postcard beach huts or grab a bite to eat at one of cafes and restaurants nearby, including some with decking leading straight onto the beach, it’s a great place for a day out at the seaside.

Dog Control Orders:

No dogs are allowed on Southend's beaches between 1st May and 30th September. Every person in charge of a dog (except guide dogs) who permits the dog to enter or remain on the beach during this period can be fined.
