Enjoy the Norfolk seaside

Norfolk has 93 miles of coast and whatever kind of beach you like, you'll find it here... and all of them are unspoilt, clean, safe and family-friendly.

There are resorts like Great Yarmouth, Hunstanton, Cromer and Gorleston-on-Sea that have traditional family seaside fun along with glorious beaches. Here you'll find bucket and spade and seabathing, as well as ice creams, sticks of rock and candyfloss. You'll find attractions, amusements and rides for all ages.

Great Yarmouth also has brilliant shows and festivals; Cromer has a fabulous end-of-pier summer show; Hunstanton attracts surfers and kitefliers, and Gorleston is a little quieter, but no less fun.

Norfolk coast

On the north Norfolk coast between Cromer and Hunstanton, you'll find huge expanses of flat sand at Brancaster, Holkham and Wells-next-the-Sea and lots of things to do.

Brancaster is renowned for its royal golf course and nearby bird-watching; Holkham is famously featured at the end of the Oscar-winning Hollywood film Shakespeare in Love when Gwyneth Paltrow's character is shipwrecked in 'Virginia'; Wells-next-the-Sea has a topsy-turvy row of almost 100 brightly-coloured beach huts.

On the east coast of Norfolk, from Overstrand down to Great Yarmouth, you'll discover dunes, marram grass and spectacular cliffs with fascinating geological evidence of the ice ages.

And the best thing about beaches in Norfolk is that they're great to enjoy throughout the seasons, are perfect for wildlife spotting and nearly all of welcome dog walkers all year round.
