Book a beach hut

Please note you will need to be registered with Short Breaks to obtain your new 'passport' number to be able to book a beach hut.

Please note for 2019 there will be a small charge of £5 per day to book a hut. Further details on this can be found on page 33 of the short breaks brochure.

Enjoy a lovely day at the seaside in one our popular beach huts. We have five beach huts available: two in Walton; and three in Clacton, two of which can be made into a double-sized hut.

The double-sized hut can be used if you have lots of medical equipment or if you are a support group or school group.

Please note the double hut is not available to book during the two days of the Clacton air show. As this is a hugely popular date and to maximise the use of the three huts, families will only be able to book a single hut.

The following huts have wheelchair access:

  • 'Sandy Shores' in Walton
  • 'Kite Tails' and 'Sand Pails' in Clacton
  • 'Rock & Chips' in Clacton
  • 'Happy Days' in Clacton

For 2019, we will have a new beach hut located towards the Naze-end of Walton (closer to the caravan site), which is to be called 'Seas the Day'. Unfortunately due to its location on the promenade it is not possible to have ramp access to this hut.

The huts have easy access to the beach and are close to Changing Places facilities. You can also make use of a Landeez all-terrain wheelchair. We will send you instructions on how to collect the wheelchair when your booking is confirmed.

Each hut comes with deck chairs and beach toys. We also provide a dustpan and brush and ask you to leave the huts clean and tidy for the next visitor.

The huts do not have power or running water, but there are lots of cafes and shops nearby where you can buy food and drink.



Our three huts are on the main promenade, halfway between the pier and the Toby Carvery. A Changing Places facility is next to the main toilet block, a minute's walk away.

You can see everything that's happening on the beach from the hut.



Sandy Shores our original Walton beach hut is on the promenade close to a Changing Places facility. The pier is a few minutes walk away. Unlike Clacton, there are storm barriers in front of the hut, which means you won't have a clear view of all the beach.

Our New Walton Beach hut, 'Seas the Day', does have direct access to the beach, but this does mean, as the promenade is not very wide, ramp access is not possible at this location.
