Here you can take a boat trip (tide permitting) out to the Nature Reserve of Scolt Head Island a seal and bird sanctuary. During the summer months breeding ringed plover and oystercatcher make their home here.
There is a small car park down on the staithe, and a footpath that runs along the sea channel and finally ends up looking over the lovely bay with its sandy beaches as you see above.
Its a fairly long walk and it is not straight, but it is super as it cuts through salt marshes and creeks and leads you to a board walk with the sand dunes and beach beyond.
Here you will find wide sandy beaches backed by high dunes covered in Marram grass. This part of Norfolk is a Bird Watchers paradise with oyster catchers, avocets, curlews and migrating birds visiting. On these foreshore Little Terns nest, protected by a fenced off area at the appropriate time of year.

pub/inn, which serves many homemade dishes using local
produce wherever possible, the pub also has a small
intimate restaurant. For shopping try sophisticated
