Review of City Beach

City Beach
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Southend is a town in transition. The towns council don't seem to know if we are a Seaside town A business Centre or a University Campus town. We are famous for our Seasside , Golden Mile & Pleasure Pier so lets be proud of it!

This beach just ruined a sunny day out! Dirty muddy beach with loads of sharp and rocks in the water. One of nephews and I cut our feet whilst walking in the water. Not great for anybody to swim or spend the day!!!

I just dont like what has been done with City Beach and the 'shared space'. I find it rather tacky. There is always somewhere to grab some food and a drink though but that is not owing to the new City Beach itself.

When City Beach was being constructed, all the moaners said it was a complete waste of money. How wrong can they all be. It is attracting so many tourists now, together with the great fountains & lights, that has really put Southend on the map.

I love this part of Southend but when did Jubilee beach become City beach? As Chelmsford is the only city in Essex please can it be renamed Jubilee beach. Anyway the children love the fountains and the shingle beach especially when the tide is in.
