Nice to find this beach in Norfolk to walk our dog, when there are restrictions on many other beaches in the area. Good for us too with a good choice of local food pleasures and eateries in the surrounding area.

This lighthouse is owned by the village of Happisburgh. I'd thoroughly recommend visiting this N.N. Coastal Icon, you'll need to check via the website to see when it is open to visitors. There is a small fee to pay per person but remember the lighthouse...More

My favourite Norfolk beach. A magical little place with a wonderful energy, despite the erosion. Great photo opportunities too.

Walked along the beach from Walcott to Happisburgh (approx 2 miles). Interesting walk as you can see the various attempts overtime to stop the coastal erosion with various sea defences. Encountered very few people so sense of getting away from it all is sensed. Kept...More
