Southend has seven miles of coastline to explore so you're sure to find the perfect beach for those glorious sunny days! From secluded, quiet spots where you can nestle amongst the beach huts, fun family-friendly beaches perfect for building sandcastles, and wide open spaces that are a kifesurfer's paradise, plus they are the perfect place to catch the beautiful Southend sunsets!

Four of Southend's beaches proudly fly a Blue Flag. If that's not enough, all Southend beaches have been presented with a Seaside Award by Keep Britain Tidy.
