Nowadays the estuary at Blakeney is only navigable to small pleasure crafts and small fishing vessels with shallow draughts.
The village is sheltered by four miles
of sand and shingle known as Blakeney Point which is
owned by the National Trust.
Trips out to see the seals on the point
can be booked at the quay at Blakeney.
Although the village has no real beach, summer months find people wading in the warm waters of the estuary and sunbathing on the sand banks.
