Beaches

Winterton-on-Sea beach

Winterton beach is 15 miles away from the campsite but well worth a visit! It has the wonderful advantage of a vast expanse of soft sand which is backed onto by the rolling dunes of the National Nature Reserve.

The stretch of sand between the dunes and the sea gives a lovely uncrowded and open feel to it, and also means you can spread yourself out without being on top of other people.

It’s another one of those Norfolk beaches that doesn’t matter whether the tide is in or out, as there is abundant soft sand whatever the tide. If you go further up the Norfolk coast to beaches such as Overstrand, Cromer or Sheringham, then tide times do become an issue.

There’s a lovely café overlooking the beach, where you can eat in or pick up lunch and take it down to the beach with you.

Alongside the beach is the Winterton Dunes National Nature Reserve which is managed by English Nature, and is home to the rare Natterjack Toad which breeds in the shallow pools behind the dune ridge. A wide range of breeding and overwintering birds can be seen including the little terns on the foreshore. And of course, all along this coastline you will see the seals basking on the beach or popping their heads above the water.

Parking is available in a pay & display car park to the south of the reserve. Public & disabled toilets are also available at the entrance to the beach.
