Heacham Beach

Heacham Sands is split into the North and South beaches and is surrounded by holiday parks.

Although the beach is on the Norfolk East coast it actually faces West into the bay. This means the sea can be calmer than the open sea of other nearby Norfolk beaches. It also means you can get some spectacular sunsets.

Popular for outdoor activities including jet skis, kitesurfing and windsurfing.

Facilities include: toilets, parking on both North and South beach areas, beach huts, cafe and shops in the town.
