Things to do in Burnham-On-Crouch

Wallasea Island Nature Reserve

Wallasea Island provides visitors with spectacular walks offering views across the Rivers Crouch and Roach with excellent opportunities to get close to nature.
There is a good network of footpaths throughout the reserve so if you fancy a short stroll along the sea wall or a long hike away from the hustle and bustle of Essex life, Wallasea has something to offer everyone.

The Wallasea Island Wild Coast project is a landmark conservation and engineering scheme – the largest of its type in Europe. Walk along the seawalls to see the saltmarsh, mudflats and lagoons, where terns dive into the water in summer and huge flocks of waders and wildfowl arrive in winter.

Approx 15 minute walk from Burnham-on-Crouch station to ferry pick-up.

The ferry ride over to Wallasea Island is approx 15 minutes, further details here.
