Was here only yesterday As recommended by a local I got talking to. Can sit in your vehicle facing out to sea, watching the boats and huge container ships up close coming and going to and from the docks. There is a fort and museum just beside this viewing point that is well worth a visit and should entertain you... More

Nice place to just sit and relax and watch the world go by, cafe is ok, not a bad price, the only thing is the speed bumps on the way up there

Great little cafe at Landguard Fort with a good variety of food and drinks to suit all budgets. Located right next to sea with views towards Harwich. Tea from £1 a mug and staff very friendly. Open every day and loads pf parking. Great for walkers appproaching from Felixstowe across nature reserve and away from road traffic.

What a lovely place to visit, especially at sunset. It was lovely to see all the ships coming in and walking along the beach.

A bleak, windy viewing area reached by a road thats got more speed humps than herd of camels. When you get there, there isn't much to see, unless you are lucky enough to see a ship come in or out. Personally, if I never see it again I'd be very happy.

Would have liked to see more of the old town which is worth visiting. Port is huge but is vulnerable to whether conditions and road system needs some maintenance. Of interest if it relates to your business or particular hobby.

if you check with the local press, radio or information bureau you will be able to find out which container ships are due in, some being the biggest in the world. you can sit next to the docks on the beach or in the café where you can watch the ship to shore cranes load and unload the ships.

Industry in action plus the best cafe for refreshments. At certain times of the year you can use the foot ferry to and fro to Harwich (and there is some room for bikes). Good all round trip!
