Irlam's Beach (Earlham's)

Irlam's Beach - Essex
© flatland wanderer and licensed for reuse under this Licence

Whilst Dovercourt Bay in Harwich is a popular spot with its own caravan park, Irlam’s beach just along the coast is virtually unknown. Backed by dunes and marshes this is a quiet spot to relax and take in the views across the sea towards the docks up the coast.

Whilst this isn’t a spot you’d want to swim off it is good for fishing and spotting wildlife in the marshland and dunes behind.

Lovely find today really enjoyed our walk there. At one stage t thought I was at one of the secret locations we visit on lanzarote. Really enjoyed it.
