Nice, albeit blustery, walk along the sea wall. Watched kite surfers at the start of the walk, by Shoebury Common. Plenty of places to stop and sit, and even picnic benches. Would definitely benefit from having some public toilets in the park although there were...More

I'm very lucky as I get to walk my dog here almost every day, and I never tire of it, especially when it's overcast and there are few people around.Splendid isolation. Great place for dog walkers with plenty of bins, so it's a shame that...More

This is a lovely place to take your dog for a walk, in open countryside by the seaside. Would highly recommend for a stroll with a breath of sea air

Hi, There are toilet facilities on Shoebury Common Beach, a very short walk away. Also at the beach is Uncle Tom’s cabin for food and refreshments. There’s a child’s playground within Gunners. Hope that helps. :)
