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.

Kessingland Beach has dog restrictions. Dogs are not allowed between 1st May - 30th September. Dogs are welcome the rest of the year but must be kept on a lead.
