We moved to Canvey in 2015. We downsized to a bungalow five minutes from the beach. As a young boy in the 60s from London it was a day trip. The place degenerated over the years and it became seedy and dirty. However, with the closure of many of the arcades with new condo's being built, Canvey started to pick... More

As I live about 1/2 Mile from the Seafront at Canvey I can speak quite bluntly about it. As with most smaller Coastal towns there is not a great deal to do regarding entertainment for the Kids. There is the Labworth Beach Cafe where you can get refreshments but at a price I might add. Along the Esplanade there are... More

If you fancy a day out at Beirut-on-Sea, then look no further than Canvey Island sea front. You can park all day for £2, as they must be that desperate for visitors. First impressions are of Adventure Island. This amusement area appears like it has been closed since the early 1960's. it's all fenced off, and everything is rusty and... More

Had a lovely walk along the sea wall by the Lobster Smack. Made a change with different views across to the new port.

Had a lovely time with the kids at the amusement park at Canvey. We usually go to leisure island but my kids have loved going to fantasy island which had opened just next door as there are big rides for them as well as small for the baby.😬👍🏼Defiantly recommend it. A lot cheaper than adventure island in Southend and a... More

We went to Canvey seafront recently and were very impressed with what's changed since our last visit. It boasted a lovely clean environment along with good facilities. We particularly liked Jimmy macs which was one of the best places to eat we have been to along with what looks like a truly awesome little theme park called fantasy island with... More
