Beach
“BEACH - 'Soft, yellow sand, backed by grassy dunes, on Norfolk’s less-visited north-east coast. Waxham merges with the neighbouring beach of Sea Palling to the north, making this stretch a good choice for long seaside walks. Expect peace and space, plus the chance to see grey seals lolling lazily at the water’s edge. Behind the beach is a small village with a restored, 16th-century barn housing a café that serves teas and light lunches. Parking is on the roadside.' ~ The Telegraph”

“This is a medieval barn which is very interesting to visit. Not much time needed to spend there, but its free and could be combined with a visit to the seals at Horsey or Horsey Mill. There is also a cafe.”

“Waxham Beach is one of the few beaches that not many people know about, unless you are a local or a regular visitor. This is what makes it all the more intriguing and a joy to be on. It’s beautifully hidden away amongst trees and sand dunes, and with no regular car park and no amenities close to the beach, it’s a real gem, attracting those that like peace, quiet and tranquility.”
