Clacton Seafront and Garden Walk

This 1870m (one mile and a bit) walk takes you from Martello Bay along the lower promenade up to Clacton Pier, then onto the upper promenade through the stunning gardens, working your way back to the start point. On average the walk will take between 20 - 30 minutes, and you could burn up to 360 calories!

It is fully accessible for wheelchair users and pushchairs from start to finish, with toilets and cafes on route, along with a Pay and Display coach and car park at Martello Bay.

The walk begins on the Promenade in front of the Beach Diner Café (CO15 1BW) along from the Toby Carvery Restaurant, Martello Bay and the green sign pictured above (Tendring Healthwalks Main Sign) indicates the starting point and shows the route the walk takes.

Stroll along the 'Blue Flag' award winning seafront and take in the breathtaking views out to sea.
