If you fancy visiting some penny arcades, a walk along the pathway (pebble beach) and having an ice-cream or visiting a Rock shop in Norfolk this is your town. Quite crowded and very traditional but fun. Great for... More

It is a great wide sandy beach and further along - red and white cliffs stand above green seaweed covered rocks. Plenty around for all and well served for snacks.

For those living in the East Midlands (around Leicester) and wanting a pretty reasonable beach for a day trip, Hunstanton is probably your best option. This place is divided largely into two parts: (New) Hunstanton - stony beach, donkey rides, family amusements, attraction rides, joke shops, promenade, eating.

This beach is very stoney although there are some beautiful beaches further along the coast. We did enjoy the stroll along the promenade in both directions either to Hunstanton town or Heacham village.

Lovely place to watch the sunset. The wide open sandy beach at old Hunstanton provides a welcome respite from the family attractions at hunstanton itself. A stonier beach but with great facilities including Sealife Centre, boat trips to see seals, pony rides and family funfair rides

Just gone there today for a whole day of fun. So much to enjoy, sea world, the pier, the amusement shops, and the simple quiet town... Just avoid the fish and chip shop called five fish fry, staff is arrogant and lazy, been serve by this guy on counter, plus food wasn't so pleasing....
