The beach and surrounding greens area are lovely. Very clean and attractive. I'm sure they get very busy in the summer. Lots of tea rooms, cafes, ice cream shops all around.

Very clean and some great views. It has a great promenade with plenty of resting places. We didn’t stay for food, however, we suggest a visit to the Dock Tavern for a great pint of ale!!

Local beach . It is what it is . Nice beach in the summer . Can get a wind off the sea in the winter but as I said it's what comes with a beach on the Norfolk coast

We love Gorleston beach, it must be one of the cleanest and most pleasant beaches around Norfolk. It’s a gem of a find and so much nicer than Great Yarmouth.

It is shallow, and seldom are there big waves (east facing), and there are life guards too. Best to let your child paddle in the paddling pool next to the yacht pond. It is filled each day and well set up for toddlers

Yes, but off the pier, usually on the corner of the river by the lighthouse, but also on the south side overlooking the beach.
