Walk Guidelines

There are two official meeting locations per day; at the start and near the mid-point. If you only wish to walk your one-mile stretch and join the walking party as it comes through your section, you can specify to meet ‘at my mile’ on the booking form.

If you are meeting ‘at my mile’, please understand it is difficult for us to specify the exact time the main walking party will arrive. To help you estimate this, use the scheduled times below and add 30 mins per mile to get to your mile. We are using a walking speed of 2 miles an hour as a guide.

If you don’t receive any emails about the walks, please check your spam folder or email info@beachofdreams.co.uk


Please be on time.

  • Start point 10AM: (Miles 364 – 369) Plough and Sail, Paglesham, Eastend SS4 2EQ
  • Mid point 1PM: (Miles 370 – 375) Southend Outdoor Cinema, Unit D3, Purdeys Industrial Estate, Millhead Way, Rochford SS4 1LB
  • End point 3:30 – 4PM: Odells Coffee shop 2 North St, Rochford SS4 1AB

Beach of Dreams Walk 25

Route: Walk 25


 Please note: The routes and mile markers were mapped in February. It is possible that some changes will be needed before the walk itself takes place, for example because of temporary path closures, weather events, and tidal conditions. If there are changes, we will walk an alternative route that is as close as possible to the planned route, and keep the mile markers as close to the originals too. If route lines appear to stray off public rights of way, this will not happen in reality and route lines will be adjusted as more accurate information from walk leaders is available. ‘Miles’ at the start and end of days may be slightly more or less than one mile.
