Public toilets are available at regular intervals along the seafront and the new toilet block at the top of the cliff on the greensward near Connaught Avenue. (20p charge)
There are outside taps near most toilets.
There are no seafront shops, the nearest shops are in Connaught Avenue.
There is free parking all along the sea front next to the greensward, be warned that this tends to fill up on sunny days and parking can then be found in the many roads off of the esplanade.
(please take care not to block residents access)
Dogs are restricted on some beaches (From the seafront Warden Station below Connaught Avenue to the public conveniences below Cambridge Road) during the summer period 1st May to 30th September.
Guide dogs are exempt.
On all other beaches dog owners are requested to follow the 'good dog owners code' and clean up after the dog. Please see signs along the seafront for full details.
Generally in the summer it is a good idea to arrive early, also be aware of heavy traffic out of Frinton, Walton and Clacton heading to London from about 4pm in the afternoons on very sunny days.
