Mersea Island is in Essex; and is the most easterly inhabited island in the UK. The island is approached by a causeway called The Strood, cut off at high spring tide. The island's history spans as far back as the Romans and visitors can find out more at Mersea Museum. West Mersea has many shops and restaurants. Relax on the beach, go crabbing, admire the estuary views, and try the wonderful fresh native oysters. Water sports are popular here, including sailing, windsurfing and kitesurfing around the calm, shallow waters. Many visitors come along for the Town Regatta in August. Quieter East Mersea, with its church, pub and village shop, is home to many of the island’s campsites and Cudmore Grove Country Park. The foot ferry runs from East Mersea Point to Brightlingsea and St Osyth. Locally-owned boat Lady Grace runs a regular boat trip around the harbour from the Causeway Jetty on Coast Road. Whilst there, you can visit the Lifeboat Station, open to visitors during peak times.
