Great Yarmouth Beaches : Great Yarmouth Beaches
Who says you have to visit the Canary Islands to enjoy some of European’s best sandy beaches? The English coast might not rival that of the pulsating clubs of Ibiza, but it has plenty to do when it comes to surf and sand and family-friendly recreational fun. The Great Yarmouth coastline offers all of that, plus 15 miles of white, clean sand, past sand dunes and seaside amusement from Winterton-on-Sea to the north and Hopton-on-Sea to the south.
Considered one of the most beautiful beaches in East Anglia, the area is perfect for those looking to spend their lazy sunner days under the sun. As anyone who has read our Great Yarmouth reviews knows, there are three piers that are the focal points of the shoreline. The Britannia Pier offers donkey rides above the beach to the north, while a wooden boardwalk is situated between the Britannia and the Jetty midway. The Wellington Pier is further down Marine Parade towards the southern end of the strip.
The beach is managed by the Great Yarmouth Borough Council and was awarded the Blue Flag for cleanliness and visitor facilities in 2004. It was also ranked third in a poll of top five beaches for sandcastle building by British scientists. Definitely worth the trip!
