Tree-lined avenues containing lovely restaurants and boutiques sweep down to the quiet sandy beach, which is totally unspoilt by annoying fairground rides and tacky shops. A lovely place to walk, Frinton Beach is clean and stretches for miles.
Hamford Water and the Walton Backwaters nearby is an RAMSAR classified area of mudflats and marsh grasslands. It provides a breeding ground for little terns, and is a wintering ground for dark-bellied Brent geese, wildfowl and waders, wigeon, pintail, ringed plover, curlew, dunlin, godwit, redshank, shelduck, teal and avocets.
At nearby Walton-on-the-Naze nature reserve, there are currently over 70 resident seals, a number which has grown from only five in 1986. A great way to see the seals is to take a trip on Tony Haggis' boat, Karina, which can be booked in the summer months. The cliffs at Walton-on-the-Naze form one of the finest geological sites in Britain and are classified as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). At the base of the cliffs is London Clay which is 54-million years old.
