With one of the area's best beaches and home of the UK's second longest pier, Walton charms visitors of all ages. From beach activities to countryside walks, Walton has it all. Gently shelving beaches provide an ideal location for a day by the sea. Nearby shopping and entertainment facilities ensure there is always something going on.
The beautiful Naze cliffs and National Nature Reserve nearby provide the perfect opportunity for walking and bird watching. Gaze across Hamford Water and watch yachts enter and leave the marina whilst in the background the large vessels sail towards the Port of Harwich.
The beach is located adjacent to the town of Walton-on-the-Naze, on the Essex Sunshine Coast. Access by mainline railway connection from London and Ipswich. Bus service from Frinton on Sea and Clacton on Sea. Access by road from the south from London and Colchester via the A12, A120, A120, A133 and B1034 and from the north from Ipswich via the A12, A120, A133 and B1034.
