Dovercourt is the residential and holiday suburb of Harwich and, although more modern in appearance, it is actually older and larger than Harwich and is indeed mentioned in the Domesday Book. Fine promenade areas, an attractive and safe beach – seafront recently awarded the prestigious Blue Flag – parks and entertainments, including choral and band concerts, as well as the fortunate low rainfall, make it a most welcoming town with good hotels and restaurants for those wishing to stay a while. Excellent waters also make sailing, wind surfing and angling pleasurable pastimes.
