North Norfolk Coast
The North Norfolk Coast is like no other.
North Norfolk Coast is blessed with some of the most beautiful beaches in Britain.
Holkham beach was voted Best British Beach in 2014 by UK travel writers – and they should know!
From vast expanses of sand backed by dunes and pinewoods to rock pools, crabbing and the infamous sticky Wells 'mud', North Norfolk has the dream beach for everyone.
Children can keep busy building sand castles, sculptures, shell mosaics and kite flying, whilst adults can relax and contemplate in peace and solitude.
Walk out through the pine forests to the beach and you'll be met with unbroken vistas of sand dunes, miles of sweeping sands and rolling seas.
Perfect for dog walking, kiting or simply relaxing.
Walk onto the pier, head to one of the museums, paddle in the lapping waves or try your hand at building a sandcastle empire.
For the inquisitive, a few hours crabbing can be enjoyed at the Quay in Blakeney before a walk along the coast path to Morston and catching a boat to see the seals.
The Deep Heritage North Norfolk Coast - spanning from East and West Runton to Happisburgh, is renowned for some of the best rockpooling and fossil hunting in England.
The world's most intact remains of a Steppe Mammoth were found at West Runton - visit and see what you can find!
Cley, with its pebble beach, is perfect for stone skimming.
For novices, this is where you select flat and rounded stones sculptured by the sea and throw them out to sea (in a motion not dissimilar to throwing a discus) and see how many times you can get them to bounce on the waves before sinking.
You'll be amazed at how long young and old can be entertained with such a simple activity.
So, no matter what type of beach you long for, you will find your idea of perfection in North Norfolk.
