Attraction Information

Taking the kids to the seaside is always a pleasure. Avoid the large popular beaches and find a spot at Leigh Bell Wharf near Leigh On Sea, instead.

This small cosy beach sitting at the edge of Old Leigh has its own authentic charm. Surrounded by Cockle Sheds, cobbled streets, sea and sand, you'll feel as far from the stress of city as you can be.

A lazy day at the beach is a firm family favourite - just unwind and enjoy the sun to the sound of kids playing and waves washing on the shore with a quiet “Woosh”. Want more fun? Nearby Leigh Bell Wharf you'll find Leigh Heritage Centre, plus Essex Wildlife Trust’s Two Tree Island and Leigh National Nature Reserve.

  • Atmospheric little beach
  • Perfect escape from city life
  • National reserves next door
