General

  • Direct access to seven miles of beach on the Essex coast
  • Indoor and outdoor swimming pool, sports court and kids' club
  • Café, takeaway and adventure playground

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.

This site is a member of Parkdean Resorts group.
