It has lovely wide golden sandy beaches with colourful beach huts peeping out from amongst the sand dunes. The village mostly consists of gingerbread houses built from the local stone and from the beach you can see the old lighthouse and the famous multi-coloured cliffs.
There is an extensive championship golf course located just behind the wide sandy beaches.
Originally a fishing village, Old
Hunstanton can trace its history back to AD 855 when St.
Edmund was shipwrecked here.
The village of Old Hunstanton has two
pubs as well as hotel restaurants and the Old Hunstanton
Neptune Restaurant. There is a Post Office and
delicatessen, but for a greater range of shops head for
Hunstanton, which is a mile and a half away.
