“Beautiful beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Beautiful, much less busy than other nearby beaches. It offers a great walk, clean sands and water. Number 1 choice near Hunstanton.

“Best Beach in Norfolk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2014

Always visit Brancaster Beach as it is our favourite. Safe for little ones, dogs can go on the beach (and it would appear everyone clears up after their dogs), soft clean sand, and a little kiosk for food and drinks - can get extremely busy so be prepared to queue. We never want to leave. Fee for car parking but is reasonable if you are staying all day.

“Beautiful soft sandy Beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Lovely stretch of soft golden sand , very clean and shallow water great for children and dogs . Large pay and display car park with kiosk for snacks and drinks and a toilet block. Although it was very busy the time we visited if you just walk along the beach a little further there is plenty of free space and the sand dunes make a great place to sit .

“Fun under the sun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Brancaster beach in Norfolk is just a short drive beyond Hunstanton but is so much nicer to visit. Although there is a charge for car-parking, the toilet facilities are nearby and free to use. The beach is clean, dog-friendly and has grass and sand-dune areas too for kids and pets to play in.
