- Claremont Pier was constructed in 1902/03 and used originally as a mooring for Belle steamers. The pier was designed by D. Fox at 182 m in length and 11 m in width. In 1912, it was extended to a length of 230 m. A storm in 1962 washed a section of it away, reducing its length to 218 meters.
- Lowestoft is a popular kitesurfing spot on the East coast but is only permitted from September to May. The restrictions are due to the popularity of the Lowestoft beaches for tourists in the summer that make it impossible to launch safely. To kiteboard on Lowestoft main beach you must consult the Beach Warden/Life Guard. Lowestoft has a wooden groyne sea defence system commonly found on the UK coast which can make landing difficult. Two Piers are on the beach so consider the wind direction before launching and if it is blowing towards the pier it is best to move down to Pakefield to give yourself some more room.
- At Pakefield the wooden groynes stop and the beach has more shingle/pebbles than the pure sand of Lowestoft. Cliffs and beach attract fossil hunters. A Waveney District Council/KiteboardingUK.com approved Kite Zone that starts at the last wooden groyne at Lowestoft and goes onto to Kessingland beach. Facilities include car park and small selection of shops in the village.
- 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.
- Beach: Kessingland Beach View: A restaurant with a waterfront view over Kessingland’s coastline, one of Suffolk’s best rural beaches. What’s on the menu?: Modern British & European cuisine. Don’t miss their paella nights on a Thursday or their Sunday roasts.
