Nice area, quieter than Southend, but Uncle Toms Cabin is a rip-off £4.00 for 2 small scoops of ice cream. Was in Italy last week in an expensive resort and it was 1 Euro (90p) a scoop!!

My kids loved it they loved running around the beach. It is a beautiful place for children to play and swim. One of good things about the beach is that it is not overcrowded.
