Sign In

Restrictions apply 1st May to 30th September – Like many beaches in Norfolk, no dogs are allowed on the main strip of beach opposite the promenade. You will need to head north or south of the main beach away from the crowds but look out for the appropriate signage. On the promenade dogs must be kept on a lead.

Outside of the summer season months, there are no restrictions for what part of the beach dogs can walk on.

    Spent a week in Bacton walked the beach early morning and early evening with my dog also let the dog run a few times for a paddle loved it so much we have booked to go back 😀

    Sandy and quiet! We came after 6pm (parking charges only until 6pm) to eat our fish and chips and have a walk on the beach. Lovely spot for it! More dog walkers out then, and some people out for an evening swim 😵‍💫 the sand is generally soft (some areas with small stones) plus sea defences to dodge ... and less fun, the odd pallet with rusty nails in ... ? Would definitely return though as it was very peaceful.

    We took our three dogs on the part of the beach they were allowed on and it was great, nice sand and cool breeze, although on occasions it was blowing a bit too hard. Definitely advise a wind break. Some parts of the beach are pebbly but find a sandy patch and it's great paddling for the kids and dogs. We met plenty of locals on our nightly walk across the beach too, you could easily walk to Mundesley and get some fish and chips from the Catch, great food. It was our fist time in Norfolk and we found Bacton beach good. We also visited Holkham beach which was lovely but we had to walk miles to the sea and the wind was blowing so hard we got sand blasted.

    Quiet possibly the best beach I've been on in England. Only negative is irresponsible dog owners that have no control over their dogs off the lead (be cautious of that). Beautiful beach and a lovely walk.
