A wonderful sandy beach with a mile long prom. Always people on the beach. Nice café on the prom. The yearly volleyball is a must.

We visited on the day of Storm Doris, with the wind coming off the land and whipping the sand along the beach. Fine day to get free skin exfoliation! The sand is very clean and golden, with a few small pebble patches. Gorleston Beach is set in almost a bay shape, and very often the wave height is less than... More

Nice quiet beach with soft sand. It was cold but had a nice walk along the beach watching the waves.

See attached pics. A very cold day. Lots of warning signs that there are £100 fines if you take your dog on the beach. We counted over x10 dogs on each visit. Popular with families with buckets and spades even in mid February. Lots of fishermen. Bingo and an amusement arcade close by. JJ's is recommended by everyone for Sunday... More

Although we travelled out of season, there were still plenty of families enjoying the space with many dog walkers (dogs are allowed on the beach out of season).

We were surprised to find that the parking on the front was free, but grateful nevertheless. We walked in the late winter sunshine and marveled at the cleanliness of the promenade and the beach that was litter free. Being bought up in a Northeast coastal resort in the fifties, Gorleston beach had a feel and atmosphere about the place that... More
