Thorpe Bay Beach is approx two and a third miles east of southend pier.

There is ample pay and display parking bays, a large grass rigging area and up to 8 hours sailing per tide. The beach faces south and is sailable in winds from west round to east. The bottom is completely flat and has the same depth water for nearly a mile out. It also gives great flat water sailing either side of the tide but can be extremely lumpy in a southerly wind
