Huge stretch of sand and a pleasant enough beach but lacks scenery and a bit featureless. Imagine it's great if you have a dog but unfortunately we lost ours 3 months ago. She would have loved it. Lots of parking but subject to tidal flooding....More

Fantastic hidden gem of a beach ! Quiet and peaceful, lots of lovely sand for the children and dogs to enjoy, and plenty for old codgers like us to observe and while away the hours. Totally unspoilt and well worth a visit. Great for family...More

Despite being popular there is so much space on the beach that it is easy to find a peaceful spot of one's own. A great place for a picnic.There is a wreck off the coast but there are warnings not to try to walk out...More

Beautiful clean beach with ample parking, toilets and a small kiosk selling drinks, snacks and beach stuff (buckets and spades etc). Make sure you heed advice about NOT walking out to the shipwreck that’s visible at low tide. Don’t bother with Holkham Bay, it’s massively...More

Not a lot to say about Brancaster beach. In a good way. I love this beach. A simple, sandy beach on the north Norfolk coast. If you want a relaxing, clean, sandy escape then Brancaster is the place to go. I like Hunstanton when i...More

Good car park, minimum £2. Toilet and beach hut with food/drink/ice creams etc. Level access to beach, but loose sand makes a bit hard work for buggies etc. Once on the beach, huge expanse of flat firm sand, shells, some water pools. Very clean beach,...More

We were here for the very hot weekend - though very busy , it didn’t spoil just how beautiful this beach is - we walk every morning at 5am and it’s stunning watching the tide come in and the sun rise!

Sorry I do not know & did not see anyone riding during our visit. Looking at the size of the beach I can not see why it would not be OK. There is a golf club at the entrance to the beach perhaps the y could help?
