To be honest, it was pouring it down and the wind was so strong when I visited, that I only really went down the ramp and back up again. But from what I saw, it was a large sandy beach backed with large rocks. Looked...More

I can’t express how amazing this beach is and if you’re looking for somewhere to stay then Coastguard Cottage is a must!

We briefly visited this lovely beach on an exceptionally warm October day but we were shocked at the high cost of the parking. To charge £1.50 per hour in October is outrageous. Needless to say we didn’t stay for longer than an hour. We moved...More

Great Beach. Dog friendly either side of the main beach - which is also dog friendly throughout the winter months. Also the Reef Bar is excellent for Sunday Lunch 😋

I’ve been up to Sea Palling this afternoon and I could not find any disabled parking spots unless I’m totally unobservant. Even the spaces in the closest can park in front of the shops didn’t seem to have disabled bays... More
