Details

Holkham beach is a the jewel of the North Norfolk Coast. At low tide the beach stretches for miles and miles and you can walk in an unspoilt landscape of just sand, sea and sky. On hot days the pinewoods provide some welcome cool shade.

As part of Holkham National Nature Reserve the beach is home to large flocks of wintering birds and is an important site for breeding Little Terns, Ringed Plover and Oystercatcher. These birds nest on the ground so are vulnerable to high tides and disturbance from people and dogs. During the winter large flocks of shorebirds can be found along the shore edge and on the developing saltmarsh in Holkham Bay. To help these rare birds it would be helpful if dogs could be kept on leads.

The extensive dune system is rich is wildlife with colorful carpets of yellow flowers in the summer which attract large numbers of butterflies.
