General

  • Family-friendly park right next to the beach in West Mersea
  • A 25-minute drive to Colchester; 45 minutes to Clacton-on-Sea
  • Café, shop, play area and clubhouse with entertainment on site

Right next to a splendid beach on Mersea Island, and within easy strolling distance of cafés, pubs, restaurants and shops in the town of West Mersea, West Mersea Holiday Park is in a real cracker of an Essex location.

Is this an island or not quite? Well, it all rather depends on when you visit – for the vast majority of the time it’s actually connected to the mainland, but when the tide rolls in it briefly transforms into an island that’s completely cut off. It’s a fine place to visit whether it’s in full-on island mode or not: there are some tiptop coastal views to be admired from the park and it’s close to the Blackwater Estuary, a nature reserve that’s particularly popular with migrating seabirds (and the birdwatchers who set out to spy them).

With that coastline also comes easy access to watersports (sailors, windsurfers and kitesurfers will all find plenty to amuse nearby) and oodles of tasty seafood. Sole, mullet, herring, bass, skate and cod are all frequently hooked out of the ocean here, and it really wouldn’t do to miss the excellent native oysters as well.

A shop is on site for picking up grub to go with your fish and there’s a café for days when you don’t fancy cooking for yourself. Other facilities include a play area and a launderette, plus a clubhouse where folk gather for food, drinks and entertainment in the form of cabaret acts.

    Location of site was spot on.

    Disliked: 

    Seemed to be a lack of facilities for touring vans, only 1 wash up station,toilets and showers 5/10 minute walk away in static park, laundry even further and only one grey water and chemical disposal point which appear very antiquated compared to other sites we have stayed on.

  • Liked: 

    It is a very well laid out site with easy access to all facilities - and easy access to the beach!

    The restaurant staff are friendly and the food is well cooked with reasonable selection which should address most tastes although it is a little light on vegetarian options.

    Toilets and showers are clean and tidy.

Local attractions

When you’re not birding on the Blackwater Estuary, investigate another nature reserve, the Essex Wildlife Trust Fingringhoe Wick (20 minutes' drive), a 200-acre habitat of 200 species of winged creatures, 27 types of dragonflies and damselflies, 24 sorts of butterflies, plus a few adders and badgers.

Admire the 350 species of flowers too while looking out for critters too, then seek out more botanicals in the Beth Chatto Gardens (half an hour). For more animals, Colchester Zoo (25 minutes) is the place to see everything from cheetahs to lemurs, while fish fans might want to amble around the aquarium in Clacton-on-Sea instead.

This coastal town also has a beach, pier and amusement park to busy the kids with; for more tiddler-friendly things to do, chuck the Go Bananas indoor playground (25 minutes) and the Curve Watersports aqua park (40 minutes) on your itinerary.
