Holkham Bay Beach
Holkham Beach is part of the Holkham estate and within one of Britains largest nature reserve. A large sandy beach on the Norfolk coast path backed by sand dunes, marshland and pine woods. The beach is nearly 1 km wide at low tide and nearly 6 km (4 miles) long.
Ideal for families that want to get away from amusements and arcades to play on the beach and walk in the woods. On sunny calm days traditional sand building and swimming is the activity to do whilst on windy days take to walking and kite flying.
This is a rural beach and so you have snacks available during the summer months and lifeguard at weekends during the summer.
Care must be taken when swimming due to strong tidal currents, keep between the red and yellow flags.
Horse riding on beach only with a permit.
Holkham Bay has all year round restrictions for dogs on some parts of the beach.
