Sunrise Mindful Walks

This early morning sunrise walk offers so many mood-boosting benefits. Its an experience for your memory books.❤️


Ignite joy with a Sunrise Walk

One Event Every Month
at Dawn/Sunrise (times vary)

Enjoy something special, some quiet time in nature at sunrise and boost your mood while talking in the fresh sea air along the beautiful coastline at Walton On-the-Naze. Research shows that walking in nature offers stress-busting and mood-boosting advantages, plus a welcome chance to stretch our legs.

Enjoy a chat with good company, connect with others, create calm in yourself and discover your ability to feel joy at any moment. Allow yourself to experience something that is pure fun, taking in nature and the movement of your body along the beautiful Essex coast.

  • Learn a mindfulness practice
  • Feel joy in the moment
  • Enjoy chatting with others or just taking it all in
  • Enjoy a hot cuppa and cake at The Red Beach Hut afterwards

We can get so caught up in the busyness of our lives or caught up in the blows that life has dealt us that we forget how to take care of ourselves. These walks will help you to take time for you. Take in the nature around you and feel pure fun and joy, because you have allowed yourself to experience it. No matter what is happening in your life, use this time to decompress, get some exercise and breathe.

You may be pleasantly surprised about what you find inside, and your ability to feel happy at any moment. And you just might make some new friends. ❤️

Why a sunrise walk?

The benefits of spending time in nature are well documented. Spending time in nature at sunrise, well there is nothing else like it. It’s remarkable.

When do the sunrise walks take place?

The sunrise swims take place Once a month. These are ticketed events and can book your ticket on this page. Dates and times will vary in order to swim when the tide is appropriate for swimming!

What time of day does the walk start?

At sunrise! We meet for the start of the gorgeous early dawn. Plan to meet at dawn. You can check sunrise times here.

How long are is the walk?

It’s not about how far we go. Depending on who takes part on the day, we can vary the walk to suit you. Typically it is a 1.0 mile walk towards the Naze tower and another 1.0 miles walk back. We can make it shorter, it is never longer as we must get back for breakfast.

Who is the walk suited to?

The walks are suited to anyone who is able to walk. It’s about taking in the moment, not being an experienced walker.

What happens after the walk?

After our walk, we will retreat to The Red Beach Hut, a cosy base to come back to, ready with hot drinks, delicious breakfast to refuel our bodies after the walk. Relax and enjoy a wonderful view of the sunrise. 

Mindfulness events are run in collaboration with Blossome.

Blossome is a supportive community dedicated to transforming lives through talk, immersive experiences, creative expression and motion, helping exhausted people move forward in their lives after losing a loved one to alcohol dependency or addiction. 

Blossome offerings and curriculum strive to help people connect with and love their true self. This is achieved through finding hope and connection in a supportive community with an abundance of programmes and immersive experiences that will help them use their voice, build strength, let go of beliefs that hold them back and learn new rituals that will enable them to find their way back to themselves and to a life filled with joy.
