About

Scratby Beach near Great Yarmouth is a wide curving, ochre-coloured, quiet sand and shingle beach found at the base of low sand cliffs.

A row of large boulders are positioned towards the back of the beach to prevent erosion of the high sand dunes which have virtually become cliffs at this point.

Perfect for long walks with the dog or without from autumn to spring or for long lazy days in summer.

Walk northwards along the cliff top and enjoy wonderful panoramic views across the sea coming back to the beach via one of the several pathways.

Scratby beach also offers some good surfing opportunities which are better during the winter months and when the wind is in a westerly direction. When surfing conditions are good Scratby beach can attract a substantial crowd.

Access to the beach is via slope and steps. Parking is available on cliff top along with public toilets.
