Old Hunstanton Beach

Old Hunstanton Beach is a sandy beach with sand dunes and colourful beach huts.

Hunstanton is becoming a main beach for kitesurfing and is ideal to learn on due to the gentle shelving beach. Potential issue is high tide at Old Hunstanton in onshore winds as the cliffs can generate huge updrafts.

Car parking available.
