Clacton on Sea is on a stretch of coastline
known as the Sunshine Coast as it enjoys more than its fair share of sunny days.
For those looking for a tradition seaside
or family holiday, there are all-year-round attractions as well as an annual entertainment programme, see Things to do
Pier is perhaps the best known tourist feature. In 1871 it was originally built as a landing point for goods and passengers
but as Clacton became an increasingly popular destination for day trippers, the pier was lengthened and entertainment added
including rides and amusements.
Just by the pier is The Pavilion,
a family fun park with lots of activities for the children and a coffee bar and restaurant.
Clacton sits in the middle of miles of beaches.
Jaywick Sands, including its Blue Flag Award-winning Martello Beach, is to the West. You can walk along the seafront
from Clacton Pier to Jaywick Sands in 20 minutes.
