Corton Coastal Village has some of the very best sandy beaches around try Kessingland Beach.
Kessingland is a long, wide, sand and shingle beach backed by low cliffs. An unspoilt beach and thanks to its size and rural location it rarely feels crowded. Making a great day out whatever the weather rain or shine. A number of cafes can be found at the beach front. Parking can be found along Church Road, next to the beach on the outskirts of the village.
Southwold beach is backed by a promenade which runs along the front of the town. It is only a quick walk to the town centre and a short promenade to the harbour area. The beach can be accessed down a very short flight of steps. Southwold beach regularly holds the Blue Flag awards which demonstrate that the beach is not only clean but provides an excellent array of amenities.
Backing on to the pretty seaside town of Aldeburgh there are no shortage of facilities either. Along the beach front is any number of quirky historic buildings. Which include the 400 year old Moot Hall, a Martello tower, a converted windmill and a Norman church to name a few.
Lowestoft South Beach with its fine sand and wealth of local facilities, also known as Victoria Beach. This is a Blue Flag awarded beach and has clean waters. A refurbished seafront and promenade providing easy access to the sand.
The beach at Walberswick is just a short walk from the village which means all amenities are close at hand. Walberswick is best known as the home of “The British Open Crabbing Championship”. A walk in the other direction will take you past the Walberswick Nature Reserve with its mix of marsh and heath land.
Dunwich beach is set in a break between the cliffs where the road literally ends on the beach. The National Trust own the beach and much of the surrounding countryside. This whole area is teeming with wildlife which thrive in these rare habitats.
This beach is set at the end of a lane which runs across fields before abruptly stopping at the cliff edge. The beach at Covehithe is a peaceful stretch of sand backed by the crumbling golden cliffs. To the south is Benacre Broad, a brackish lagoon and conservation area.
A 2 mile stretch of clean, golden sand which curves around the bay. A promenade just under one mile in length runs alongside the beach and has a number of benches, allowing strollers to rest while taking in views of the bay. Deckchairs and wind breakers are also available to hire. One of the beach’s draws is the vast expanse of sand when the tide is out. There are two car parks, one near to the Gorleston Pavilion Theatre, and another halfway along the beach. Both car parks are free.
South Beach in Great Yarmouth is the generous stretch of sand to the between Wellington Pier and the new outer harbour at the mouth of the River Yare. South beach is never as crowded as Great Yarmouth’s Central beach and is a good get-away spot in that respect. Everything is still within easy walking distance.
