Lodging
“Gorleston beach is the ideal way to spend a day by the seaside. Its lovely with plenty of space and not all stones. There are plenty of places for meals, ice-creams, dough noughts and all your normally goodies by the seaside. Plenty of parking either on the road by the cliff top or down by the seaside. There are public toilets close by the seaside. If you want to walk along the beach you can walk to Hopton, go threw Hopton Holiday Village and back via sandy lane, Gorleston Golf Club, follow the road to the end turn right and it will bring you back by the cliff top. If you are like me I love walking a complete circle and not going back the same way as you went. I guess it's about an 2/3 miles”

Café
“This is set right near a beautiful beach. It's a bit of a drive but worth it! The beach is set near dunes and you may see a seal. The cafe serves delicious snacks and cakes. Check the opening times in the colder months. ”
