Restrictions apply 1st May to 30th September – No dogs are allowed on the beach near the main entrance but you don’t have to walk too far north or south of the beach entrance to find a place to walk your dog, as the restriction is quite narrow compared to most of the beaches in Norfolk. 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.

    Nice beach, though much better at low tidy when there's a wide sandy expanse. Rock pools and fossil hunting possible too. Easy parking nearby.

    Lovely beach to walk along during quiet periods. Parking & toilet facilities are available. Cromer pier can be seen in the distance too.

    The reason for our visit was a sunset swim for the grandchildren. West Runton didn't disappoint. For sunsets I suggest the north coast of Norfolk, unless you want to travel out to Hunstanton. The view to Cromer pier is amazing and the crumbling cliffs a reminder of the always present coastal erosion. The car park closes at 21:00 so be careful you don't get locked in. In the summer there is a small stretch of beach where dogs are not allowed, but it is a short walk to the best sand for your dogs off their leads.

    Dog friendly beach, parking £4 all day, same even just for an hour! Check the tide times, one day we went and it was lovely clean and Sandy, next day full of seaweed and not so great for a swimming dog 😂 Toilets and small cafe and couple of gift shops at entrance to beach

    Great beach with toilets and cafe nearby and coastal path to walk. Rock pools to explore and lifeguard station if taking a dip in the sea.
