The hidden beaches of Norfolk

The hidden beaches of Norfolk

The Norfolk Broads are an atmospheric wilderness of rivers and lakes. They're also home to three amazing beaches: perfect for a May Day stroll with your partner

Most people don't realise that the Broads National Park in Norfolk stretches all the way to the coast - and a trio of untouched beaches where couples can enjoy vast stretches of sand and, if they're lucky, a swim with the local seals.

Horsey Beach

Horsey village has the famous Horsey Windpump and Horsey Mere but that's not all: there's a lovely tucked-away medieval church and a brilliant pub, too, beyond which you can follow the path all the way to the dunes and beautiful sandy beach.

Waxham

There's not much to the village of Waxham beyond the impressive thatch of Waxham Barn, a vast 16th-century construction, which is open to the public and is also home to a cafe and handily-located bike hire facilities. But follow the path through the dunes and the beach awaits - a glorious sandy expanse.

Winterton-on-Sea

The village here is lovely, and has a good pub to boot, but the beach and dunes are awesome, a vast, dog-friendly stretch that extends for miles in either direction. You can swim with the seals, have lunch in the excellent beach cafe or just hide out in the dunes with your loved one. Plus, it's one of the few breeding grounds of little terns in the country.
