Horsey Beach, Horsey
(4.8/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
Come face to face with grey seals at Horsey Beach, the mainland mating place where you can take a peek into the lives of these sea animals. Walk on the paved paths around the area up to the dunes 2 km (1.25 mi) from the parking lot. Sip tea or coffee at one of the many cafes and restaurants available right there on the beach and catch sight of cow (momma) seals resting with their little pups. The wind on the shore can get strong, so consider bringing a jacket. Operators recommend staying back at least 15 m (49 ft) from seals. Take a look at our Horsey tourist route planner to schedule your visit to Horsey Beach and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
