Superb spot...you can walk your dogs from here to the south for miles and miles...safe and sandy mostly and friendly seals along the way. Occasional spots with cafe's just off beach for some R&R. Closer to Happisburgh there's a dog friendly pub in the village

If you’re after a gorgeous beach for walking the dogs look no further, a lovely quiet beach with a nice mix of sand and pebbles. Sea wall is pretty good to walk down if you don’t fancy the beach itself!

The beach can be unsafe but that is due to coastal erosion. I've been coming here since a baby and have deep connections with the place. I love collecting sea glass and dipping my feet in the water. The waves are big and if say...More

Easy access from either end of the beach i) from Beach Road on the edge of the village or ii) from Cart Gap Road by the Lifeboat station. Both have (pay) car parks, clean toilets and, in May at least, a cafe. You can walk...More

I cannot review the beach, the slope has gone. We went to the car park and turned round. The footpath to Walcott has been diverted along a road.

Beautiful beach.. Nice place to have a walk and enjoy the view. (Maybe take a picnic ) Access is via the car park down a steep sandy slope, could prove difficult if you have mobility problems. Toilets available by the car park.. Dog friendly..
