West Mersea Holiday Park
Mersea Island, Colchester, Essex, CO5 8DA (view map)
Welcome to Mersea Island, a haven of tranquillity, rich scenery and wonderful coastline. Set in 30 acres of attractive parkland, this Essex holiday park features a beautiful beach, along with a range of additional facilities. During a full or new moon, the island (and park) is briefly cut off from the mainland by rolling tides, creating an atmosphere of peaceful isolation, perfect for those anxious to escape the rigours of the modern world.
Holiday Home owners here benefit from the views of the nearby Blackwater Estuary (a Site of Special Scientific Interest) with its many types of seabird and assorted wildlife. The coastline is renowned for its brilliant fishing, and the regular hauls of fresh oysters mean seafood-loving palettes are perfectly catered for.
Watersports fans will also be in their element. The nearby sea and breezy conditions are perfect for sailing and boating, windsurfing and kite surfing. The seafront is lined by colourful beach huts, a scenic backdrop to a picturesque coastline stroll.
