Overstrand beach

Details

When the tide is out the beach is flat sand, great for building sandcastles, taking a nice gentle stroll or just relaxing in a deckchair. Walking is a popular activity in Norfolk and you can start the coastal circular walk or the Norfolk Coast Path from Overstrand. Both are scenic walks. There is an ice-cream van every day in the car park.

• The beach is accessed via a long gradual slope which is also used to launch some fishing boats. There is no vehicular access to the beach.
