Caister Beach

Caister beach is a large length of sandy beaches backed by dunes to the north of Great Yarmouth. The beach starts at Caister Point to the south and runs a long way north past Caister-on-Sea itself and joins to Scratby beach.

Caister on Sea has a number of holiday parks backing the beach.

Facilities include shops, cafes, toilets, small car park to the north and larger car parks to the south.

  - Good: generally good water quality
  - Sufficient: meets minimum standards
  - Poor: You are advised not to swim. The beach will stay open and an action plan should be in place to improve the water quality.
