Wow, what can I say about this beach, It blew my mind it was so vast, sandy, clean and well kept. This is obviously a much cared for beach that is part of the holkham estate.

glorious beach but takes about 15mins to actually get to the beach from the car park so be careful of the tides

As someone who lives by the sea- Lytham St Annes- we are used to beaches nothing like as clean as this and very restricting for dogs. Not so here! You can walk for upwards of two hours and the beach and horizon just seem endless. A real joy.

You could walk for miles on this wonderful beach. Although there was other people around you needn't bump into anybody as the beach is vast. There are plenty of different walks either one the beach or in the forest.

This is my most favorite beach. Its very peaceful near the far end away from well-next-sea. There is also a forest walk. This is perfect for families there even a swimming bit in the sea.

Doons, golden sand as far as the eye can sea this beach is lined with Cyprus trees and is stunning. You can walk to Wells easily either through the glorious woodland or with a sea view along the beach. Gorgeous

I liked everything - the hotel at the end of the access road, the parking, the walk to the beach (quite a way and mind the edge of the boardwalk). Everything a holiday maker could wish (apart from commercialisation)

Holkham beach / bay has to be natures finest. I never ever tire of visiting here and walking miles on the gorgeous beach. You park in the long car park ( pay and display ) walk up the boardwalk and onto miles of fantastic beach, turn right and walk to Wells turn left and walk to Burnhan Overy Staithe, or... More
