“Relaxing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

A lovely and pleasant walk along the seafront, great on a warm summers evening. Needs a few more tea/coffee places to grab a drink and sit down and admire the view, but otherwise it's a great way to relax, walking the dog.

“Great day out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Just got home from canvey islands seafront and ive got to say, apart from the seawall walkways needing a tidy up ive had a great day out.
I went to Leisure Island with my 2 children aged 6 and 8 and they loved it just as much a my wallet after paying £2.10 for all day parking and only a fiver each for wrist bands they was free to use all the rides including the go karts that were a right old laugh for both the kids and us.
Had lunch from the in park canteen area and for all 4 of us to have chips a drink and ice cream come to under a tenner.
There is plenty of security around and facilities to use including toilets, picnic areas a tattoo hut and an arcade area which are all clean tidy and safe to use.
im bringing my dog down next time as i didnt realise i could bring him to a family park but there is water bowls spread around for with clean water every day.

“dated”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

I live here and wish the local council would invest some money in the seafront, it gets busy in the summer and im sure it would be worth their effort. on the plus side you cant spend much money as the rides and amusements are aimed at little ones. poor choice of food, not much other than chips

“Sad”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Old, faded, dirty, scruffy and sad. Not a place to feel good about or safe in . Just go somewhere else.

Scott P, Manager at Canvey Island Seafront, responded to this review, March 9, 2013
HI. I was sad to see you felt so disappointed about Canvey Seafront.
As the manager of Leisure Island Funpark I can only respond on the work we are carrying out in our park. The 2013 season will see new rides and facilities being installed as well as existing rides being updated.
With new C.C.T.V, First aid, toilet and baby changing facilities all being updated as well as security staff on site at all times I believe we offer a safe and happy attraction for all young families and their children.
It is our aim to change the image of Canvey seafront and this can only be done from and acting on all feedback we receive, and if you ever visit our Park we hope you might see Canvey in a different light.
Thank you. Scott Petty. (General Manager).

“You like oil?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Too near oil refineries to be classed a proper seafront. For years I have been coming to Canvey Island (on and off). It poses itself as a seafront but that is all it is - a place on the seafront!
