the UK. This area is also great for paddles in the rock pools and
while you’re there see if you can spot the wreck of a 1907
fishing boat used in WWI & WWII. Hunstanton is one of

This is a lovely, uncommercial sandy beach with safe water for
paddles and swims. There’s a pawsome beach café where you
will find fresh water - plus they sell some rather tasty doggy
snacks. Poo bins can be found at the lighthouse car park and by
the lifeboat station.
A great beach to visit as it’s usually quiet and there are miles of
beach to run around on. There’s a small car park from which a
short walk through the golf course will take you down to the
beach. Alternatively turn right where you see the sign post for
the Coast Path and walk on the compacted path through the
sand dunes towards Thornham (approx. 3 miles). This path
goes through the Holme Dunes Nature Reserve and there are a
lot of birds about. Some nest in the sand dunes so be careful
not to disturb them and please stay away from areas that have
been roped off during the breeding season.
There is a car park by the creek and you can walk along the
embankment which will take you down to a nice, quiet beach.
Birds and other wildlife do nest in the sand dunes - you know
the rules, don’t get too close or you will upset them and we
know you don’t want to do that!
