There are far more beautiful beaches in Norfolk. Hard to access and dangerous if not very mobile. Main Gas Terminal from North Sea is situated at Bacton so not very pretty! Would not return!

A lovely sandy beach, fairly clean, great to have a dip in the sea, easy to catch crabs. Not very busy well recommended.

Lots of 'groynes' in situ - so if you like to walk along the shore line, then this is not possible as they are quite high. That said there is a pretty decent coastal path slightly higher up from the beach , which can give...More

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.

There are points in the sea wall to use steps to go up and over. Then from the walk way you need to use steps down onto the beach. A bit difficult for restricted mobility
