Western Esplanade, Westcliff on Sea, SS0 7RR

Westcliff Beach (at low water and with suitable footwear) offers lovely walks and is superbly positioned for the world-famous Rossi ice cream emporium. You will also find the famous Archway Cafes, where you can grab a delicious snack or meal – al fresco in good weather – and enjoy watching the world go by.
On the shore stands The Genting Casino which offers great live music and entertainment, a restaurant, and of course the chance to gamble. A short uphill walk from the coastline you can find the Cliffs Pavilion, home to outstanding entertainment all year round.

Please note that a BBQ ban is in place – There is a current Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) in place banning the use of BBQs on all Southend Beaches.
