Flo our Cockerpoo loved this beach and didn't want to come home! Great beach with lovely sand and a dog playground. We did get a great understanding of the coastal erosion as well.

Went there because it was quiet and we could take the dog onto the beach. Beautiful beach we loved, the dog loved it. Shame some dog owners do not pick up the dog mess.

What a lovely summer holiday I had with my family. When the sea is out the beach is covered in pools were the children can splash around freely and safely. Its never too crowded and pets are also welcomealong certain parts of it.

Hi, we were there in October, the beaches are great ideal for kids , families and dogs! We didn’t find much to go in Bacton although the pub on the sea front is very good for food.

As another traveller has mentioned, parking by the beach is free at Bacton. Another alternative is to park in the small supermarket car park to meet and walk to the beach from the side of the shop.

Hi, dogs are allowed on certain parts of the beach during specified times. There are signs along the coastline, however, some of the markings have eroded so it's not always clear. Generally, you need to be careful between... More
