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.

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.

This is a most beautiful area a short walk from parking - well worth a visit. We saw it with tide out - it was great. Our dogs loved it, there were also lots of children, but there is so much space - not a problem. Downside - no toilets and one very small overstretched catering van.

a super place with great walks in any direction with lots to see and do for all ages. Be careful on the tides but the dunes, pine forest and nature is excellent
