    Amazing staff
    Visited Fantasy island with my two children, I purchased two gold wristbands costing £20, they could go on the rides unlimited times, my daughter is autistic and was able to go way out of her comfort zone going on rides she wouldn’t normally go on which was amazing. Staff were absolutely incredible, two staff members named Faith and Alysha, were so helpful and made my children’s experience magical, as did the whole team. I couldn’t be more grateful to them all for the best day ever. Keep up the great work, amazing team spirit, music was brilliant, made everyone happy. Food and drink’s excellent. Many thanks for a wonderful day 😃

    Lovely day with family
    Canvey seafront is perfect for a family day put. Safe paddling pools perfect for crabbing and child swimming when the tide is out. Really excellent cafe on the beach - they provide all you need in cooked food, icecream, beach equipment all at good prices. Close by are funfairs, cafes and amusements. ** take care of parking restrictions in the carpark opposite amusements- you must pay after 6pm or face a fine!

    Warm home cooked locally sourced menu. In my opinion it's how dinner should be served.
    Explore canvey you won't be disappointed. After a morning trek with spot, we discovered an absolute gem called Shells marina cafe. A warm welcoming located in small gains SS8 7TJ the dinner was beautiful and exceptional. In my opinion home cooked with fresh locally sourced produce. I will certainly dine here again. Thank you Paul n Michelle 👍

Lovely place to just have a simple walk without any frills or additions.
It's what one might describe as a no frills walk.

SO NIFTY I love this place its so quirky and cool the locals are lovely (especially the youth) the complaints people have are unwarranted and although some of the buildings are dated I believe this show’s character high crime rate is surely a myth i will be returning

We usually go to Leisure Island but my 7 year old who is autistic wanted to try the one next door. It cost me £20 for 2 wristbands, it would have been £14 but the couple of rides they wanted to go on had to be upgraded to a gold which i think was a bit unfair for that much more.
I thought a lot of the staff seemed bored and was just waiting to finish.
They was just sitting around and talking to each other, not really talking or paying any attention th the children.
One of the ladies was really moany at the children and I felt on edge as my son is autistic and finds it hard in certain situations.
We stayed about 1 hour and a half at most which is quite expensive for £20 and we payed a few pound extra for other equipment that was extra.
I think we will just save for Adventure Island or go to the Leisure Island next door in future.

Wasn't sure what to expect as had not heard great things but seafront was surprisingly good. It was cleaner and less crowded than Southend beach. A nice place to see and listen to the waves and reconnect with the soul. Leisure island could have been better and safety was a ittle concern. Restaurants were limited. Area has potential to be really nice but wouldn't want it to get too commercialised either as it's simplicity and beauty would be lost. Maybe just some more/better restaurants.

I didn't know Canvey had a proper seafront, there is some great artwork on the seawall and a great place to centre yourself!
