Kessingland Beach

Kessingland beach is less popular and more barren than the nearby Suffolk beaches at Lowestoft and therefore is less popular with families but attracts sports like kitesurfing, buggying and landboarding.

A WD Council and Kiteboarding UK’s approved teaching/ kite zone with strict rules, the buggy area is located a short distance away from the kite zone.

Facilities at the beach include toilets, cafe/restaurant, pub, Caravan park and campsite. The car park is a little back from the beach in the village and if you have a lot of kit it is best to drop off and then go and park the car.

Kessingland Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
