Wells-next-the-Sea Beach and Harbour - Norfolk

Holidays in Wells-nex-the-Sea

The large sandy beaches of Wells-next-the-Sea are flanked by colourful beach huts and surrounded by a pine tree forest and a nature reserve with miles of winding sandy footpaths.

The beach is around a mile from the quay and can be reached by road, or by a narrow gauge railway which runs from the quay during the main holiday periods, or if you fancy a leg stretch with a good view you can walk along the causeway which runs parallel to the main shipping channel.

The walk is firm under foot up-to the beach, so its a nice stroll even out of season, giving you the opportunity to admire the many colourful boats.

At the beach you will find a cafe, toilets and a large car park. The beach is very popular but watch the tides as it is possible to get stranded on a sand bank. There is a mature pine wood running down to the beach which is interesting to explore on a summers day.

There is a  pitch and putt, a canoeing lake and also refreshments close to the beach.  The village itself has some lovely shops, good restaurants, pubs and inns. Or dine al fresco with a good choice of delis, takeaways, sea food and of course fish and chips.
