Visit a beach

Allison can give tips on other local ones

Further afield try

Brancaster
Miles of sandy beach stretching as far as the eye can see, bordered by sand dunes and mere yards from the car park.

Holkham
A vast sandy beach. At low tide you have to walk a mile to get to the sea. There are often horses being exercised on the sands and sometimes the household cavalry.

Wells
The eastern end of Holkham beach. This is busier but there are toilets and a cafe. The beach is vast and great but the tide can come in very rapidly so take care.
