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.

    A stunning beach, with miles of walking to be done, Great at low tide, and can walk up as far as the island that holds the SS Vina. The beach is actually a National Trust site and again worth a visit. There is a carpark, with ample parking.

    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.

    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.

    Lovely sandy beach, lots of room , gets busy but if you walk a bit further you can have it all for yourself. Dogs allowed all year, many people did bbq's , no bins! You take your rubbish back with you and surprisangly no rubbish was left on the beach late in the evening 🩷great sunsets in August/September. Parking has lots of spaces, 10£ all day charge, it gets busy but there are stewards further up in the village controlling the traffic. Had to wait 30/40mins to enter the car park ! So get yourself there early if the weather is good. Small coffee shop when you enter the beach with big queues sadly, didn't buy anything but I'm sure they serve chips, icecreams etc. Toilets nearby. No watersports. It was the first time I visited and I will be back.

    Another beautiful and vast Norfolk beach, with sand 🏖️ that goes out forever at low tide and resident seals 🦭 at the far West of the beach. Follow the paths through the dunes to avoid the busy main entrance, where crowds of people block the way in. Just West of the main path you can follow the locals to a more peaceful part of the beach. From here the you can continue West for about a mile or so to a creek with resident seals. Humans are mostly stood on one side of the creek, so seals are not too disturbed. They seem quite happy watching us watching them, from their bank. Occasionally they even swim out for a closer look.
