Racist Racist Racists

Unfortunately when I visited Clacton this time, it was a massive let down.
During the day it was ok, but maybe the first time I went to Clacton i was naïve.
Unfortunately I was racially attacked on multiple occasions. The weatherspoons, the loft, truth, peppers unfortunately host people that are extremely stupid and racist. This also goes with the arcade area. I was actually asked to leave one of the arcade areas due to management being racist. The security guard was very nice and polite, but openly said that alot of these places are racist.
In all bars I got into situations with regards to my colour and unfortunately got punched in my ribs. We complained to management who just shrugged it off and said go find somewhere else to go if you ain't happy.
Please beware and cautious.
I won't let the minds of uneducated individuals stop me going to a place that I enjoy the scenery of but it's a big warning that people should be careful.

Visited here while on holiday and found the beach clean, sea was a bit dirty but that can't be helped.
Nice to walk along the prom, sit and have a drink and watch the world go by.

Sep. 2021 • Family
On the 13th Sept we arrived at the Orchards & was told that we couldn't get in2 our caravan till between 5-6pm. So we went 2 have a look & the caravan was all the way over by the other side of the park. So we complained 2 reception 2 say that our Disabled son who can't walk very far & the pavement was uneven with wheelchair & we was ready 2 go home. & this very kind at reception called Kirsty said gìve me 10mins 2 see what i can do. So 10mins later she came back & said she had a nice Delux caravan 2 mins from the clubhouse. & cos things r so difficult now 2 book a holiday online as there r 2 types of caravans (Stay & stay & play). When i explained 2 Kirsty that i had Learning Difficulties Kirsty said 2 me that i had 2 press on the Stay & Play not just Stay. Then I phoned reception were Kirsty answered the phone i explained 2 Kirsty that we had no passes so she brought 3 passes down 2 the caravan. Kirsty went out of her way 2 help us.

Lovely place to relax

Having recently discovered Clacton on Sea, I absolutely love it. Such a beautiful and clean beach in general. Lots of parking available mostly for free and the beach is absolutely massive! You will not be short of space.

Just be aware that there are a few sections on the beach that are dogs only and silly enough we went and camped in that section (not being dog owners) without realising until a huge dog came running towards my 3 year old with its owner lagging behind in an attempt to restrain it. Albeit, we moved into the “dog free” zone even though we did see some owners walking their animals along the water in our area, despite the hefty £500 fine threat.

A big disadvantage is that there are nowhere enough toilets in comparison to the beach. The local toilets that we use is a small hut which, by the end of a warm day, gets extremely filthy, smelly and dirty, to the point where you do not want to enter it but if you have to go, you have to go! The local council should really have more cleaning services put in place in order to maintain hygiene especially with covid still lurking.

We haven’t tried any of the ice creams or fish and chips yet, because they are mainly around the pier area and it gets extremely busy there.

Some areas further down the beach are pebbly and more stoney but the majority of the beach is beautiful soft sand.

Loved the beach, loved amusement s. But sorry the language of some of the people on the pier or in bars was absolutely vile.
Will not be going again

brilliant beach

A fantastic beach and lots of it and has been sculpted to provide safe places to swim and the water is quite clear. But would not recommend going at the weekend as we found far to busy.

If you like the smell of weed definitely it's your place. Smell of weed it's all over the beach. The accommodation in some of the hotels is horrendous. For me was one of my worse experience.
