Restrictions apply 1st May to 30th September – There is a small area to the left of the main entrance where dogs are not allowed but this isn’t a problem when there’s miles of beach area for everyone to share.  As common, walking further away from the main entrance you’ll find lots of space for your and your dog.

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

    Absolutely amazing beach. Very long, pure sandy beach, enough to accommodate hundreds of people. The car park is right by the beach with a lovely food kiosk. There are toilets by the car park, but I didn't check it out. If you want to see seals, you need to go there in the hot months of the year and walk towards the Nature Reserve on your left when you are looking at the sea. When you get to the Nature Reserve boundary, walk away from the sea along the river bank, and you'll see some resting on the river bank across inside the Nature Reserve boundary. Well worth the walk. Amazingly clever and peaceful animals. I took plenty of photos and videos of them.

    Visited Aug 23. Beautiful sandy beach , no shingle . When low tide beach goes out for what seems like miles. Lots of places to sit and if you carry on walking left or right at entrance from car park , you'll get away from crowds to quieter space. Plenty of room for many !! Lots of space on low tide foe families to play games on easy to walk on flat soft sand . Many cricket games etc being played. Nice cafe , people really lovely. I had a cuppa and cheesy chips and price wasn't too bad and service v good. Toilets quite minimal and further back from beach , but seemed to be coping somehow unless there were more somewhere that I didn't see. Parking is quite steep in cost ..£5 for 2 hours . And take bug spray , midges or whatever got me!!!

    Fantastic, impossibly long beach. Very, very long walk out at low tide. Fine sand, lots of shells and take binoculars to spot oyster catchers and the odd curlew. I could hear them, but I couldn’t spot one. My friend told me that if you walk towards the estuary, it’s possible to get a boat to see seals on the rocks. However, we never made it that far. There is a toilet block and a shed outside the car park that sells drinks and basic food and all the essentials for kids for the beach, including windbreaks, in hindsight, I wish I’d got one. As you can see the weather wasn’t great for August! I think the car park was £5 for the day.

    An amazing beach. Wonderful sunset scene. Parking fee: £5 for 2 hours, £10 for whole day parking. Beware of tidal flood news.

    Having been to a few Norfolk beaches, I found Brancaster to be the best for a number of reasons. 1. Distance from car park to beach is a minute walk. 2. Beautiful golden sandy beach with miles of walks. 3. SEALS! Look out for the seals and see if you can spot one. 4. Easy access to a number of pubs so your much needed post walk pint isn’t far away. 5. Dunes - great to mix up your walk and see a different take on the surroundings. - overall a wonderful spot and I will be going again when I am next in Norfolk.
