Where are the toilets
CandSand ColchesterJul 29th 2019
The first time we ventured to this end of Clacton but this seemed to be a gem of a beach for the grandkids. Easy to park right on the sandy beach. Even some palm trees.
The two major problem the 100s of people found were that the carpark wasn’t taking cash & secondly it was miles to the nearest toilets. Both the cafe & the Martello carvery actively stopped the public using theirs & the nearest we were informed was ‘half way to the pier’.
Is this really acceptable?
