About Southend Thorpe Bay Beach

The sand and shingle beach has been awarded a Quality Coast Award and is Marine Conservation Society Recommended. Activities include kite surfing, sailing, wind surfing, canoeing and kayaking, amongst other water sports. There are great views of the Thames Estuary and numerous species for bird watchers to spot.
