Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Toilets are unbelievably bad . One of the gents closed due to vandalism. And another one saying no toilet paper will be supplied until further notice. , Also can not wash hands as soap dispensers have been removed. Do the council just want to drive visitors away!

I also enjoy a ride from London to Clacton. Nice stroll on the seafront, winter or summer, you can stroll on the sea promenard, with some promenard cafes, or on the higher street level along the gardens. Pier is pleasent with a nice cafe/fisn n' chip place at the end, the Jolly Roger, also plenty of pubs on the street near the pier. Parking is easy and plentiful , with lots of free parking on the seafront.

Clacton beech is a nice beech, very sandy with a great scenery of the beautiful pier, large breaker rocks and exotic foliage.
The water is not totally clean, but it’s swimmable.
There is plenty to do with beech shops, bars, toilets and cafes along the promenade.
The pier is also worth a visit along with the town, with arcades and a weatherspoons lol

We will be retuning back in the summer hopefully when it's nice and warm as our visit today was on a very cold day
Beach looks nice although it isn't fantastic, pier is very close to shops which is helpful

The beach at Clacton is really a lovely beach. It is so Sandy, it seems to go on for miles, plenty of places to get food while you are on the beach. It’s great to see families enjoying the sunshine on this beach. There are lots of beach huts along the beach with plenty of people using them.

Had the best time with some work colleagues! Great team bonding and great fun! So much to do here! It's so calm and peaceful but also busy at the same time!

Only thing I'd like to say is that some of the toilets could be cleaner, there was a bit of an unpleasant odour whenever we went to certain ones (outside, when you go up the stairs).

Lovely fish and chips (obviously) but peas didn't come as standard with the meal, you had to pay for it separately, which we weren't expecting.

Rides were great! So much fun and laughter was had! Will definitely be going again!! Thank you!

Very busy place. Lots of things to do with the kids. Beach okay but messy. Adventure golf was good and a little bit away from the noise of the pier. Kids enjoyed all the fairground attractions and there wasn't too big a queue for them.
