The local neighbourhood

Mersea island is home to some beautiful country side walks; Cudmore grove being a popular destination for walkers. Mersea has a fantastic range of coffee shops, seafood restaurants and pubs. A couple to visit; The Coast Inn, The Oyster bar. For a little treat on the water Lady Grace Boat trips are a fantastic way to see the Island for all its beautiful scenery. If its more relaxation your after or a fun day at the sea side we would recommend a day out at the local beach where you can take a hamper for a day, or hire out a truly stunning each hut for a day; Mersea May beach hut hire is great for all the family. 
If its something to do with the little ones why not take them on a bike journey or to the Jetty where you can do a spot of crabbing for the afternoon and where you might see Mersea's own resident seal 'Sammy'. Mersea also has some faster paced activities such as 'Mersea Island watersports' where you can venture out on the water for the day learning how to paddleboard, windsurf or kitesurf. Although, If it's a rainy day why not visit Mersea museum where you can learn all about fascinating artefacts and finds. Or book yourself into The Gilt Rooms for a splendid themed afternoon tea great for big and small kids alike. Some other day activities can include fishing at day lakes such as Waldergraves holiday park. Or maybe Venture a bit further into Colchester town for the day to visit Colchester Castle park or the award winning Colchester Zoo Or maybe a day trip to Tiptree Jam Factory. (We heard it's the queens favourite) 
If its a little bit of romance your after; we would recommend a day trip to Dedham, where you can hire a rowing boat for a few hours and visit the beautiful church and get a spot of lunch in it's charming village.
