Gorleston Beach, Gorleston-on-Sea

(4.7/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Gorleston Beach into our Great Yarmouth travel itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
