    Sept 2018 A couple of day's holiday here. There's a huge spance of sandy beach, with lots of cafes along the prom incl. Munchies dog friendly cafe at the far end of the prom opposite the wind farm. It has very delicious food, the staff are friendly. Wish I lived closer to be able to walk along the prom more often!

    Sandy and very clean beach with small pebbles at the water edge. Well maintained with lifeguard area in certain areas. Alongside sea front Marine Parade, has wide range of shops, ice cream and donuts huts, restaurants, entertainments, amusement arcades. Open top bus, Tram, horse carriages, the Slingshot, the Great Yarmouth Eye (observation wheel) are quite popular. Be aware that dogs are not allowed in certain areas.

    A great beach with plenty of local amusement close by include Marine centre, Sea life, Arcade centres and cafe houses. We enjoyed a family day out to the beach. We didn’t visit the Pleasure beach with the rides because it was about to rain and we thought it was pricey for the rides and access.

    Is it the best beach in the world, maybe not, however because of the sheer length of it spanning almost 2 miles or more, there is sure to be a spot you do like that is suitable. A sandy beach offers the sun worshippers and the kids that beach that is reminiscent of a great seaside beach, so bring your towels and buckets and spades. The North end offers a stonier beach and small sand dunes and possibly more dog friendly but do check. The seafront has two great piers of entertainment as well as the leisure centre, sea life centre, a cat cafe nearby as well as plenty of food and drink kiosks. If the kids love their rides then again there are two locations that cater for those thrills and spills if that is your thing. Why not take a horse and carriage ride, or jump on a land trains, or explore on the open top bus? Plenty to enjoy here in Great Yarmouth.

    Surprisingly nice beach and enjoyable atmosphere. I was surprised when I visited for the first time because I did not have very high expectations, however, I really like the sand and even the water felt pretty good (a bit chilly, but tolerable). The beach can get busy time by time, therefore I would recommend to pick a day and time carefully. Also, it's really pretty both in the morning and evening as well, especially at sunrise and sunset times. I can recommend it.
