Shoeburyness, Essex – A Sand & Shingle Beach

I love the sea. I love the blue water, the splashing waves that come crashing against my toes, the sea breeze, and most of all, I love sea shells.

During a sunny weekend, I decided to go check out this beach, as it is about 1 hour away from my house.  Now to go to a beach which is only 1 hour away is a good thing. I am always on the quest to find a nice sandy beach near me. So far the best one I have found is over 3 hours away, in the South of England.

Shoeburyness Beach, also known as Shoebury Common is a sand and shingle beach near Southend, South East Essex.

It was packed with locals.  Southend is always busy, and it is worth going a few minutes away to Shoebury Common Beach. It has a BBQ area, activities including jet sking, kite and wind surfing.

I have always seen beach huts in magazines, photos, postcards and I so loved the look of them.

Imagine my happiness when I saw rows and rows of them at Shoebury Common and at Southend. They all have their own uniqueness, with a special touch from their owners.

Once I left the beach, I drove along the Southend beach/Promenade on the way home. That is another trip for another day, as it was quite late and the british weather stayed true to its nature. It has started pouring down. Typical British Weather.

I really wish I lived near the sea. It brings calmness and peace to my mind and body.
