Norfolk's Wonderful Beaches

Trimmingham Beach

Trimingham has a secluded beach that is popular with surfers, dog walkers and day and night fishermen.  You can access  the beach at Vale Road – its a bit difficult to find but you will find a map in the Cottage to help you. The cliffs at Trimingham are suffering badly from coastal erosion and can be unstable especially after storms – be careful!  Dogs are welcome.

Overstrand Beach

Walk from here to Cromer and back and then have a well deserved cup of tea in the Cliff Top Cafe at Overstrand.  There is plenty of parking at Overstrand and there is good access to the beach.

Mundesley Beach

Mundesley Beach is one of Norfolk’s finest Beaches. It is a long sandy stretch that is easy to access from the promenade with safe swimming.    The promenade is lined with colourful beach huts,  a little further back are shops and amenities.  Dogs are restricted in the summer month on the beach in-front of the promenade.

A pleasant sandy beach which stretches all the way to Mundesley in one direction and Walcott in the other. Great for dog walking.
