Nice place, and close to London! We had already a couple of weekends spent there as I'm a sea lover!

Very close to London, travelling by underground to new ham, and taking the c2c train to chalkwell was thrilling.... Just within an hours ride...the chalkwell beach is right adjoining the train station.

Its by chance that I landed here on a bright Sunny day...
Being high tide, the surf was eagerly kissing the sands, leaving special tokens of sea shells, colorful pebbles on the shores.

Sea, surf, sand, sun, sandcastles, sunglasses and smiles were witnessed all around me. A pleasant place, perfect to enjoy a day out, unspoilt nature to make you happy and cheerful.

Chalkwell beach is a lovely area with sandy beaches and great for a day out at the seaside. Have a swim in the sea when the tide is in and enjoy the sunshine in this lovely area of Chalkwell. Right next to the Station for easy access if not driving

I have no idea what you people see in this place. I, my mum and sister came here yesterday expecting what the pictures were showing us and what the reviews were telling us however it was damp, disgusting, full of algae and muddy. The smells around were horrific, beer, tobacco, rotten fish and urine, we had to hold our breath for most of the trip. The people were also not the friendliest and the parking was terrible as well. Never again will we go back and I will definitely make sure my friends and family are warned not to come here.
