We all know only too well how easily we take for granted that which we find on our own doorstep. However, a trip to any of the North Norfolk Beaches swiftly reminds us how fortunate we are to live in an area of such breathtaking natural beauty.
The entire 43 miles of North Norfolk Coastline is blessed with a rich abundance of flora and fauna coupled with stunning scenery, three-quarters of which are designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and many of the beaches have a history of winning awards for their cleanliness and facilities.
Norfolk coastal towns have grown and developed over the centuries. Small, isolated fishing communities have become bustling seaside resorts. However, at the core of all these towns remains the charm and character of communities living and working on the shore – the crab and fishing boats still put out to sea and the lifeboats are still proudly manned. The coastal waters and nature reserves are carefully maintained to preserve the area’s reputation as an unspoilt retreat.
The following text is intended as a guide to some of the more popular coastal destinations but please remember that it is by no means an exhaustive list. Those with the time and presence of mind will find great reward in exploring some of the more “off the beaten track” areas.
