Felixstowe Beach

Felixstowe has a five-mile coastline on the Suffolk North Sea coast, between the estuaries of the Rivers Deben and Orwell. This stretch is sand and shingle beach gently sloping to the sea within a sheltered bay. The beach is backed by a promenade and then behind the promenade you have Edwardian gardens.

Felixstowe is popular with families due to its size and location within the town.

The main stretch of beach is either side of the Pier and this is where you will find most of the facilities.
