Restrictions apply 1st May to 30th September – No dogs are allowed on the main tourist sections of the beach opposite the promenade but if you head south past the tennis courts, this area is fine to walk your dog on the beach. 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.

    Stunning beach, absolutely huge area of soft golden sand. Lovely for a winter walk. There's also a promenade alongside. Various cafes along beach.

    Superb beach and surroundings. Loads of stuff to do, from walking, sun bathing or even staying with your little one at the splash zone. Great choice of restaurants and bars to enjoy throughout the area. Loads of parking available at the pier parking. The beach is very sandy, however when getting closer to the water-line it gets a bit rocky and has loads of pebbles and stones. If you are a bit more sensitive when walking on rocky/pebbles, definitely recommend getting some water shoes. Water is quite wavy but at the same time it is lovely. It is a bit cold, even when outside there's 26 degrees for 2 straight days.

    Wonderful place to sunbathe, enjoy a refreshing swim as the water doesn't retreat as much compared to other beaches. Really great spot since it's close to many restaurants, pubs, shops, parking, etc. The water is very clean, a bit cold even when temps are above 25 degrees on full sunny days. The overall beach is amazing, it's very sandy, however it is very rocky and has a lot of small stones/ pebbles closer to the water.

    We had a fun day at the beach, which is nice and sandy for digging if you sit towards the back. It’s a good beach for swimming in, and plenty of people were paddle boarding, kayaking and more too. Even though there were a lot of people there it didn’t feel crowded. We didn’t have trouble parking as we arrived early but when we left, the beach front parking was full, with cars waiting for spaces so be aware of that before visiting. There are public toilets next to the beach, pubs, cafes and fish and chips. Even a small amusement arcade. This was our first time visiting Gorleston beach but I don’t think it will be our last. We had a really good time here!

    Really beautiful quiet beach. The car parking is free and the beach can be accessed easily by walking down a sloped path. I am a mobility scooter user and was able to drive all the way down to a small set of steps that go directly onto the sand. The dog loved it, and the kids paddled in the sea. Lots of lovely little beach huts lining the promenade make it very picturesque. There was an ice cream van and a small cafe near the car park. Definitely a good place to visit if you don't want all the hustle and bustle of Great Yarmouth.
