Hunstanton Beach is a gently sloping beach with a mix of sand and pebbles.
Along the promenade there are traditional seaside treats such as donkey rides
and ice creams while further along at the base of the famous Hunstanton cliffs
there are plenty of rock pools for mooching around in with the kids.
In 2010 Hunstanton received a Blue Flag Award and on the main beach section
there are lifeguards during the summer months.
Old Hunstanton Beach
The a little north of the promenade is Old Hunstanton which is famous for it's
cliffs which aare made up of layers of carrstone and chalk giving them a red and
white banded appearance. The cliffs are rich in fossils and very popular with
fossil hunters, here you can find bivalves, belemnites, brachiopods, ammonites
and if you're really lucky sharks teeth!

Dogs are not allowed on the main beach by the promenade between Good Friday and 31st October but are permitted on the beach section along the cliffs.
The main promenade is easily accessible as is the sensory garden nearby.
There are plenty of pay and display car parks close to the beach, along the
promenade and also in the nearby town centre.
