An early morning constitutional along the sands, a pre-lunch paddle and castle construction contest, or a romantic sunset stroll beside the waves – with the beach this close, you’ll have no problem fitting in all three.
On the Essex coast, Martello Beach Holiday Park has direct access to seven miles of broad golden sands, plus swimming pools indoor and out, a sports court, fun-packed kids’ clubs, and a multi-zone adventure playground.
There’s also a café and takeaway on site, and at busier times of year guests can enjoy the free live shows, competitions and games that are laid on in the East Beach Showbar.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Fancy a day out? Make nearby Clacton-on-Sea your first port of call, for some good old-fashioned seaside fun: there’s a Victorian pier crammed with dodgems, amusements and fairground rides, another great sandy beach, pretty seafront gardens, and plenty of places to grab some fish and chips.
Another place that’s well worth a trip is Colchester, which has attractions to suit all tastes, from the zoo to the castle, delis to vineyards, and Roman remains to contemporary art.
