The Norfolk Beach Guide


Norfolk is one of the most beautiful coastal counties in the UK, and is renowned for it’s even more beautiful beaches. Each beach varies in landscapes, from sand dunes and sandy beaches, to vibrant rock pools. So with that in mind, and the potential that the English weather has this year, we wanted to tell all of our Bulmer property visitors about some of our favourites, so that you can really make the most of your staycation!

Hunstanton Beach
Hunstanton beach is known for its red and white striped cliffs and is a firm favourite in Norfolk. The shallow beach runs for 2 miles and when the tide goes out, it uncovers some great rock pools for the whole family to explore. Hunstanton is the only east facing town in Norfolk, so is one of few places in the UK to offer spectacular views of the sun seamlessly setting into the ocean. There are children’s activities to enjoy, so if you’re away with the whole family this would be more suitable for you.

Sheringham Beach
This beach is located by the victorian town of Sheringham. It is worth checking the tides when visiting this beach, however, if the beach is at high tide you can always take a lovely walk along the promenades and admire the sea views. When the tide is low, the beach offers the perfect sand for sandcastles, stretching as far as the eye can see, or rock pools where you can become an explorer for the day.

Cromer Beach
Where time stands still, this Victorian resort is a favourite among families, as it has expanses of sandy beach. The Pier offers not only a delicious Fish n chip shop, but it’s also the perfect place to go crabbing! Cromer beach has everything you need to enjoy a quintessential British beach holiday.

Sea Palling Beach
This gorgeous beach is popular, but not too over crowded and the sea is much calmer than other parts of the coast making it the perfect place for a swim. Sea Palling is also very close to Hickling Broad, providing the the best of both worlds if you’re a nature lover. The golden sand remains even when the tide is out which makes it ideal for anytime of day, meaning it’s always a good time to go and take in the beautiful surroundings.

Mundesley Beach
Mundesley beach is largely untouched, so If you’re looking for a quiet beach away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist spots, then we recommend Mundesley. This beach is family friendly, offering lots of space to fly kites, and of course build sandcastles throughout the summer. Mundesley beach benefits from a close sea, even when the tide is low, meaning your children are always within an arm’s distance as they paddle and play.
