Gorleston Beach, Gorleston-on-Sea

4.7
#1 of 114 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.

Where to stay in Great Yarmouth
