Great in sunshine. Lovely sand and nice for swimming or paddling. Has a nudist sectional beware! The sea goes out a long way and comes in quickly. Sandi's good for sandcastles. Not many facilities in the quieter parts so need to stock up on picnic and drinks.

What a surprise when I arrived at this extremely poor overcharged parking facility. We arrived and were directed to the overflow car park (a field) which happened to be very close to the entrance,which you would expect at the end to avoid congestion and to help vehicles to turn around safely. Just be aware if visiting there are no facilities... More

A very beautiful spot this was our first visit and it was heaving I think because the queens horses were there. There where huge queues for the pay and display machines which were very tempremental. Be prepared for a long walk to the sea with no toilets or cafe/shop. In spite of that now we know we will pack a... More

Four stars not five because the car park charges are over the top. £3 for 2 hours? This is Norfolk not London! But the beach was a surprise. A long walk from our car took us through pine trees onto a huge bay. We seemed to be the only people without dogs and the untrained ones (most) were a nuisance.... More

A long walk to get to a beautiful beach. Wide open spaces, soft sand. If you like the beach that's exactly what you get. No amenities just sand and sea. Great.

I absolutely love this place, I love the tranquility of it, the absolute lack of commercialism, please do not change everything.

Amazing long beach walks, forest trails, bird watching & ice creams.. If that sounds like your type of outing, then this is the place for you. An national area of outstanding beauty, isn't it just. My brothers and I took a road trip down there for the day, we must have spent at least 6 hours there and we're all... More

The sea and beach goes on for miles and miles although you have to love dogs as there are many dogs along the way. Anyway it was not a bother. Would love to come back

....to walk here as they are everywhere - so choose somewhere else if they make you nervous as it is obviously THE place for locals to walk their dogs. We went at 9 a.m. and they were arriving in droves - but what a lovely place to walk - quite beautiful - I can see why it is so popular.... More

This is a great place for walks both through the woods and along the beach. We walked to Wells and back for lunch. The parking is not cheap and for this price I think there should be toilets provided as it just encourages people to pollute the woods! We went to a similar place in Sussex with the same parking...
