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.

    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.

    Nice beach which is in the most part dog friendly, only a small section dogs not allowed which wasn’t a problem. Beach is a mix of sand and rocks and the dogs loved exploring in the rock pools and running on the sand. Sadly didn’t see any fossils! Maybe next time. Car park at top of the hill £3 for all day parking was reasonable and if attendant not available you can pay by cash or card at machine. Cafe here and toilets, although didn’t use them so can’t comment. Beach seems nice and quiet and not too many using it. Speaking to a local they said it is often a quiet at this beach. Coastal walks along the cliff top can be done from the car park also if the beach is not for you.

    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.
