Absolutely stunning beach. We parked on Lady Ann's Rd which is pay and display, coins or card 💳 (which we used and is so convenient if your like me and don't carry cash very often) Even though was a Sunday afternoon there was still two car parked attendants based in their hut but also wandering up and down the cars...

This place is fantastic it is set well away for any dog meaning you can walk for miles without worrying about your dog. There is good parking and I would recommend the walk to the cafe and back.

absolutley disgusted by the collection of people who turned up to view the dead fin whale sadly deposited on holkham beach. Where is it? was the chorus from the chattering throngs-as though it was there for there entertainment.Awful behaviour. Beautiful beach , ugly people.

Miles and miles of sandy beach. DOG FRIENDLY In my opinion only just pipped by Wells-next-Sea beach down the road.

You can do some lovely walks at Holkham Bay. The space there is unbelievable, so large it never seems crowded. We like parking in Holkham Village car park, which is free. It's not too much further to walk. Then it's straight down to the sea crossing numerous little creeks depending on the tide - fine on hot days when you... More

A beautiful open beach with stunning views surrounded by nature reserve and pine trees. A great place for walking and flying kites which we did.

This is a beautiful place, once seen you are not likely to forget it. A vast beach, plenty of room for all, a quite unique, deeply relaxing, glorious part of our coast. A few points that rarely seem to get a mention: from the Holkam car park is a long walk, that is, a LONG WALK, to get near the... More

Perfect beach with no one on it!! After being at Wells-next-the-Sea, we were quite happy to have found this beach that was pretty much deserted. Had a really fun run/play with our dog, Barney, and wished we would have only come here! It's right next to Drove Orchard too, which I highly recommend.

This is large area of coast and woodland. There is a car park on site and the area offers good walks. During low tides you can walk on the sand. A good place for bracing sea air.

This is a great place to spend a day on a sunny day . Brilliant beach with loads of space to play and picnic . Good walks along the woods to Wells or to the birds hides . Plenty of wildlife with excellent birding and the chance of seeing seals
