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

    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.

    Well this is a bit blissful isn't it? Wide open beautiful sandy beach, with gently sloping seabed. This is a popular dog walker spot but because there are no real tourist facilities, it does stay pretty peaceful most of the time.

    Lovely sandy beach for locals. Really pretty, plenty of parking and no crowds. Perfect for a chilled beach day with the family or a walk with the dog. Not much there in the way of shops mind you, but I think that helps towards the peace of the place- not many tourists.
