Gorleston Beach, Gorleston-on-Sea

4.7
#1 of 111 in Parks in Norfolk
Breathe in the sea air and stroll along the expanse of sand at Gorleston Beach. Paddle in the sea, build sandcastles, bounce on the inflatables, sail a model boat on the boating pond, and maybe even try surfing or body boarding. Alternatively, take things easier: sit and watch people stroll along the promenade and admire the scenic bay area. Shops, cafes, and amusement arcades are all nearby. Get some fish and chips or an ice cream to enjoy on the beach. Add Gorleston Beach and other attractions to your Great Yarmouth trip itinerary using our Great Yarmouth sightseeing planner.

  • A lovely welcoming place with lovely views. A quieter more relaxing place than Great Yarmouth and would recommend this place .  more »
  • This is a lovely large clean beach. You can go for a nice stroll, have picnics. Just go there to relax. It's right by everything  more »
  • Spacious. Great in summer and good for walks in winter. Watch out for dog disgusting dog faeces from the packes of dogs on and off leashes. Sea water dirty brown year round. No surf to speak of.  more »
