This is one of the best dog friendly beaches in Norfolk.  It’s less popular with traditional holiday makers and families so with no crowds it’s great for you and your dog.

    Big carpark, no card payment but it does have an app. Dogs are welcome, just keep them away from the well marked ground nesting birds areas. Roped off with big signs, you can’t miss them. The beach is a mix of sand and pebbles. There’s lots of sand dunes and marsh lands.

    This is one of the best beaches in Norfolk, a gem on the Norfolk coast! A walk on the beach with its magnificent cliffs is stunning. We enjoyed exploring the wreck of the ship as well as looking for small marine creatures in the tiny pools created by the tide. This is definitely a perfect place for a day out. The beach is busy during weekends, but because it's quite long, you will not find it disturbing. We recommend to come when it's sunny as that's when the cliffs are the most beautiful. There is paid parking at the top of the cliffs and a little cafe where you can buy snacks or sandwiches. Make sure to check out the tides before arriving and visit when it's low tide. Otherwise, you won't be able to access the beaches. Our tip: this beach is a great place for watching the sunset! :)

    Huge sandy beach at low tide to explore with enough sand, plus dunes, above the high tide level to ensure beach space is still available for visitors. Cliff top car park is a bit pricey. Cliff top road has free parking during daytime. Close to the uniquely coloured and attractive Hunstanton cliffs. Best cafe to visit is a few hundred metres along the beach behind the dunes (near the lifeboat station).

    This is a beautiful beach to walk along,, goes from the white lighthouse down to Holme beach, a great sandy beach and sand dunes. If your staying in the Le Strange Arms this is well worth a walk along after breakfast or before your evening meal.
