If you are looking for a great beach in Norfolk, some of the smaller resorts are worth checking out. Sea Palling, for example, has consistently proved to be one of the most attractive in the area, it has a wonderful sandy beach and retained its Blue Flag for 2010 while a survey from the Marine Conservation Society also gave it ‘recommended’ status for its water quality. https://topall10.com/
When staying in North Norfolk hotels, the beach is never that far away and there are many to choose from, but for the first time visitor, it’s not always easy to know which beach to head for, though the answer if you are staying for a few days is to try a few and then you’ll have a clear idea of your favourite when you head back to Norfolk.
Another popular suggestion is Waxham, which is not far from Sea Palling, or closer to Cromer is Mundesley. This beach has constantly been praised for the quality of its sand and sea water and its picturesque location. Mundesley sits in a dip in the cliffs and a short climb up a footpath takes you out onto the cliff top where there are spectacular views across the whole of the village and right over to Happisburgh lighthouse in the other direction
Elsewhere there are great beaches at Brancaster and Holkham, and then further round to Wells and Hunstanton in the western part of Norfolk. Hunstanton is unique in that while the resort sits on the east coast, it actually faces west, whether you want to stay in one of the small or quiet Norfolk hotels or something a little more upmarket from the choice of popular Norfolk luxury hotels, you are never too far away from the beach.
There are plenty of guides and websites offering suggestions as to which is Norfolk’s best beach and most people will have their own personal favourite, in virtually all of the many hotels North Norfolk has, there will be someone to talk to about which beach to head for, but in Norfolk, it won’ be long before you find the perfect beach that suits you and your family.
