The beach is well signposted. We were there in march 2017 and parking was ok. We have been there mid summer a few years ago and parking was not easy. The usual row of gift shops a chippy and cafe The beach is good sand with easy access. I believe there is a restriction on dogs mid summer

Always visit here when in the area almost untouched with commercialisation . Exact opposite to Great Yarmouth yet only 3 miles away from centre . Walk along the boulevard on the cliff road and you get a feeling of peace and tranquility . Free parking is an added benefit . Lovely sea views and a lovely green .
