A Day at the Beach: the Best Beaches in Norfolk
If there’s one thing that Norfolk can do well it’s beaches – the county is largely coastal, after all. Whether you’re looking for a quiet stroll along a pebbly beach, to explore the traditional seaside holiday, or are desperate to wander atop beautiful cliffs as the sun sets, Norfolk is the ideal destination for you.
Three of the best…
Great Yarmouth epitomises the great British seaside holiday, and has so much for its visitors. Home to the famous Golden Mile with plenty of ice cream stalls and quaint shops, a Pleasure Beach amusement park and crazy golf, as well as donkey rides and amusement arcades, a holiday at Great Yarmouth is everything you could hope for.
Cromer may be renowned for its delicious crabs, but it also has a fantastic beach to boot. In addition there is a famous pier and pavilion, an annual summer show, and flat sandy beaches. You’ll adore paddling in the sea, and braving its waves – just don’t forget to sample some local seafood before you leave.
Brancaster beach is ideal if you’re hoping for a sandy stroll with your dog, as its flat sands and tidal salt marshes are ripe for exploration. Run and jump in the waves, or simply throw a ball or stick; it’s an adventure in the salty air like no other.
Your coastal accommodation
One of the best things about a self-catering holiday in Norfolk is that you can visit as many beaches as you want while you’re there – there’s absolutely no rush for you to head home during the early afternoon.
