The All-New Marine Activity Centre!

April 12, 2016 by Joanna Harrison

Nestled on the Eastern Esplanade in the former SMAC building on Southend seafront is The Beach Club, an all-new marine activity centre offering a massive variety of entertaining pursuits both in the surf or on the beach.

Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just looking to try something new, the Beach Club has the activity to suit you. From the thrill of powerboats and windsurfing to a leisurely stroll along the coast on a stand-up paddle board, the centre can accommodate all ages, abilities and party sizes - perfect for your next school trip, work event, birthday party, or just for a get together.

With Pay & Play the waves have never been more accessible. Squeeze in a sailing session on the way home from work, try kayaking on your lunch break, or replacing your Sunday stroll with some wave-shredding on a jet-ski. All the while earning a 5% loyalty bonus for every activity to spend at the Beach Club on future events.

Those who just want to try something new can take advantage of the taster sessions, starting from just £10, there’s something to tickle everyone’s fancy. Double or single kayaking makes a perfect group activity, while the instructor-led power-boating and jet-skiing sessions are sure to provide an aquatic thrill.

For those not so confident in the water, the Beach Club provides a selection of beach activities to keep land-lubbers entertained throughout the day.

Martin Swindon and Steve Hopper are transforming the former SMAC into Southend’s premier marine activity and water sports centre. Updating the approach yet retaining the former instructors, the centre can benefit from the knowledge of experienced trainers, many of which know the estuary inside out, whilst also opening up the facilities and activities to newcomers and groups of kids of all ages.
