Dog friendliness: 10/10 Really good. Best for dogs that are happy with other dogs around as this is a popular doggy beach. Lovely, flat sandy beach protected by a rock reef which gives areas of quiet, shallow sea – ideal for dogs (and humans!) that like to swim.
Restrictions: From 1 May to 1 October half of the beach is restricted for dogs but only to the left of the access ramp. To the right is available all year round and is the better part of the beach. You can do an easy walk to Waxham or a longer one to Horsey.
Access: Concrete slope to beach over the dunes at the end of Beach Road. Various other access points over dunes.
Facilities: The perfect amount – the very dog friendly Reefs Bar, the very dog friendly Sandy Hills cafe, fish and chips, toilets, a small amusement arcade – all at the beach end of Beach Road. At the other end of the village there is a shop/post office.
A children’s play area and plenty of council pay and display parking – long and short stay.
What the locals know: This is a very popular beach so best avoided on sunny weekend days. If you can’t walk on the beach when the tide is in it is worth having a little wander along the road at the back of the dunes heading north and looking at all the funky little chalets and holiday houses. In the summer there are often little plant and produce stalls outside the village houses and the village shop is very friendly, well stocked and useful. For more local shopping, Cooks Farm Shop and Causeway Butchers are both close by. (If you are a repeat guest with us at ERC then we offer £10 vouchers to use at both these lovely local shops!)
