Well Maintained

Well maintained seafront. Not an awful lot to see as looks into the River Thames. Nice enough walk along the front with plenty of benches and a nice beach. Worth a visit if passing.

If your in the area, cheap carparks, clean beachfront with walking sections on multi levels, lots of places to eat. Nice to watch the boats go by at the beginning of the Thames River

Nice fresh morning walk
Mar 2021 • Family
We parked by the fairground and set off along the seafront. A lot of effort has been made to keep the seafront clean and tidy, which for the most part it was.
As expected there was nothing open, but the sea and beach was tidy enough to enjoy a stroll.
There were two paddling pools ( sea water ) which I imagine would be good fun for the kids in the summer.
Plenty of benches to stop and enjoy the views - but a few more coffee huts along the route would be a nice addition.
All in all a decent place to go for a walk -

A seawall stroll
Sep 2020 • Couples
I didn't realise Canvey Island had such a lovely sea wall stroll. We had stopped on Canvey Island for a visit and decided to head to the sea for a look and found the sea wall walk. It is so lovely, super clean, really relaxing and I loved reading all the murals as I walked.

Exercise and my time

Love walking or running along the sea wall. Beautiful views in the summer. Often clean. And when you walk the wall be sure to read the stories the wall paintings offer from local artists about Canvey history. Plenty of seating along the way. It's my go-to when I want me-time.

Lovely little gem
Aug 2020 • Family
Coming from the city it’s lovely to get away with the kids sometimes.
Looked online for good crabbing places and this came up.
We was all pleasantly surprised.
Lovely designated areas specifically for the children to do crabbing.

Beach is nice advise you to bring jelly shoes or scuba shoes as there’s a lot of sharp rocks etc has some sand and stones.

Toilets were ok. No better or worse than any other outdoor toilets.
I think it’s says you have to pay £1 but all the doors were open.

Parking £4 up until 6pm then an additional £3 for 6pm to morning.

Overall a lovely day.

The fantasy island advertise wrist bands for £5 however due to “covid” they aren’t allowed apparently so charge £10 for 12 tokens
£20 for 24 tokens
£30 for 36 tokens

I thought this was a rip of to be honest you’d think they’d want to bring more business in by keeping bands or stamps whatever could easily be done by moving the pay booth to the entrances and whoever enters have to pay the £5 or no entry... but paid it to keep the kids happy and not spoil our day.
Rides were mostly 1 token each bigger rides 2 tokens.

I would recommend the beach but be prepared to overpay in the funfair if you go

Lovely beach
Jul 2020
I love Canvey Island seafront, is it perfect, no.

There is a lot of litter, that is the main drawback. The council needs to employ all-day litter pickers, or disgraceful people could just take it home with them.

The walks around this area are splendid, and the Canvey Island volunteers do such a great job of maintaining the area.

Jimmy Macs does great food. Again, it is not perfect, but enough. I was more than pleased to see a proper restaurant opening on the seafront. I am yet to try, but hear great things about Bruno's fish&chips.

Plenty of space to sit with family (and socially distance)

A walk
Jun 2020
Enjoyable Sunday walk along the sea wall, couple of “block type” public toilets open, one cafe serving from outside, parking is great value at £1 for 2 hours, on a busier day spaces could be at a premium, couple of pools with either crabbing or taking a dip option (not sure I would) small sand beach, beware of bikers using footpath(not on sea wall walk) plenty of benches to sit on and watch the world go by.
