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...
At the heart of the Essex sunshine 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 (we’re not quite sure what the latter entails, but it sounds suitably exciting).
There’s also a cafe 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.

Open from 23 Mar to 4 Nov
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.

From the manager...
Thanks for taking the time to leave a review of your recent stay. I am disappointed to read you did not enjoy your stay. We have recently invested in updating our facilities on the park and also have implemented a very strict cleaning policy with our on park warden within the touring facility areas.
I do hope will come and visit another of our parks in the future.
