Sand and shell beach on the easternmost tip of Mersea Island. On the eastern shore of the beach are the remains of a World War II pillbox. Mersea Island has been stratrgically important for centuries and there are also the very faint remains of a Tudor fort here too. The beach is the landing point for the foot ferry to St Osyth and Brightlighsea so is easily reached from either of these.
