Beaches on the coast of East Anglia

The coast is always a pull, whether you’re a birdwatcher, keen walker, kitesurfer or if you’re just interested in getting into your swimming togs and hitting the briny!

In Essex take your pick from beaches including Southend, Clacton and Frinton and in Suffolk there are fine sand beaches at Southwold, Lowestoft, Walberswick and Felixstowe.

Much of Norfolk’s 90 mile coastline is pristine, unspoilt sand – try Gorleston, Great Yarmouth, Winterton-on-Sea and Mundesley on the east coast of the county and Cromer, Wells-next-the-Sea, Holkham, Brancaster and Hunstanton on the north coast.
