This beach has changed significantly in recent years, possibly due to the new outer harbour. The amount of sand has increased massively. There are lifeguards on duty at times, some play areas. The shops near the boating pond sell beach toys etc. Well worth a...More

Great family beach, in a nice area with plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby. Perfect for a sunny summer's day with an ice cream!

Had a lovely family day on this fantastic beach, lots of amenities and a great paddling pool for the little ones. A great sandy beach and we'll patrolled by lifeguards.

Lovely beach a lot less pebbly than Great Yarmouth and not as busy. Also free parking if you can't park by the beach head along the cliff top.

What is not to like here. Free parking all day, and a row of all the seaside shops you could want. Ice creams, fish and chips, buckets and spades, and a great cafe. There are lifeguards if you do fancy a dip in the North...More

Nice a clean beach with lifeguards just in case they are needed. Not spoilt by having lots of "tat" shops.

Gorleston beach is on of the best kept secrets in England. A long, wide, pristine golden sand that slopes gently to the sea which, being the North Sea, can be a tad chilly. Back from the beach is the Edwardian Esplanade. There are clean toilets,...More

There is plenty of free parking along seafront and off the roads leading from it. Also parking around the harbour (about 3-4 mins from beach). The earlier you get there the more closer you can get. I live locally and have... More
