Set in an area of outstanding natural beauty the beach at Sea Palling is backed by sand dunes and is a wonderful sandy beach ideal for swimming. Sea Palling has won a blue flag award for several years including 2010.
The beach has very calm shallow waters due to the construction of some offshore reefs which were built as part of a flood protection scheme. The reefs make this beach very popular with jet skiers and surfers it is also ideal for canoeing and windsurfing.
This is a very long beach so there is plenty of space to get away from it all. The beach stretches along to another more rural beach just a short distance east along the coast at Waxham. Waxham beach is good for wildlife and you can sit and watch seals close to the shore and sun bathing on the beach.
There is a lifeguard on duty from May 14th to September 18th. In the nearby village of Sea Palling there are a few shops and cafés. Kayak hire is available from the beach during the summer months.
