Attraction Information

Beach time! Tell the kids to take all the tools they need to build a sand castle, put your swimsuit on and head out to Three Shells Beach near Southend On Sea.

This lovely soft sand beach is perfect for the little ones. There's water all year round, plus there's a climbing frame for your cheeky monkeys to explore.

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? Three Shells Beach is right by the Adventure Island theme park.
