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.
Heacham Beach is dog friendly and allows dogs all year.
- Excellent: the highest classification meaning the water is cleanest
- 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.
