First visited in November 2014. I enjoyed the walk along the beach and the sand dunes were mesmerizing . It was grey and windy but it was a lovely walk. Food was excellent as it was locally sourced. A definite visit again in the summer 2015.

visited over the weekend, lucky to have great weather, but as ever really enjoyed walking on the stunning, well kept beach as well as through the pine forest. Our pit stop in the beach cafe was also good, great range of food on offer, reasonably priced and most importantly- delicious! A great day out.

Brilliant location. My fiancee proposed here and is definitely a great place for a romantic walk. Such a pretty place!

Wonderful expanse of sea, sky and sand all wrapped in bracing sea infused fresh air, guaranteed to clear the head and inspire relaxation.

Lovely bay with expansive beaches and not many people. You can walk along the paths or the beach from Wells, or park on the drive up from the Victoria Hotel and enjoy walks along the beach.

Look no further, walk for miles and marvel at the big blue sky, endless sea and acres of white sand. Life is very, very good. The woods backing onto the beach are wonderful and the skies filled with geese morning and evening are memorable.

This beach is wonderful. There's no attractions or facilities but that's what's so nice about it. There is a restaurant just at the entrance where you can use their toilets. I use to come here as a child and now I'm 25 and have been coming here every year with my boyfriend since we were 17 and also bring our... More

Award-winning beach and it's easy to see why. The approach through the fir trees on a man-made decking path is lovely. The beach is a fantastic wide expanse of sand and dunes. We saw it in Autumn but I imagine it must be even better on a warm sunny day in Summer.

I am lucky enough to live , and keep my horse near, to Holkham beach. It is so lovely to have a beach that is easy to access, and caters so well, for horses. There is plenty of space to avoid people and dogs too. The beach is wide open and goes on forever! Parking is expensive but well worth... More
