On my recent visit to Dovercourt Bay I was seriously impressed by the standard of stunning shingle beach – what a treat! Walk along the prom and feel transported back to Victorian England with its quaint beach huts, ices, miniature yachting pond and iconic lighthouse structures built in the 1860s. Nowhere else I have been in Essex can match what’s on offer at Dovercourt: history, natural beauty, blue-flag beaches and plenty going on! Thank you Dovercourt, I’ll be back with the family.
