Smugglers Coast

Intrigue and Romance

Marshy Inlets and Hidden Coves

The UK’s Most Easterly Inhabited Island

Over 300 miles of coastline

This is Essex!

A stunning sea landscape from sandy beaches to mudflats, inlets and hidden coves in one of the longest coastlines of any English county. Let GuideEast show you colourful barges, and sailing villages with weather-boarded cottages.

All alongside a landscape of intrigue, ghostly tales and romance as we travel along a small part of this coastline whose flat nature made it the perfect venue for the smuggler-of-old! The tour can be tailored to include visits to Maldon, Mersea Island, Tiptree, or even travel through the Dengie Peninsula towards Burnham on Crouch “the Cowes of the East Coast”.
