- West Mersea
- All Ages
There’s nothing like the feeling you’ve discovered something new, which is exactly what you’ll get from a visit to West Mersea Beach.
Set in an island that is cut off at high spring tide and just eight miles square, you can pretend that you’re on a far away land and that you’re discovering it all for the very first time. Wander along the sandy, pebbly beach that’s excellent for crabbing.
Kick off your socks and shoes and feel the rush of the ocean between your toes as you paddle in the shallows. Take in the sweeping views of the estuary as you watch the ships come and go and feast on fresh native oysters before heading to the beach shops to pick up any other little trinkets or souvenirs from your day.
