Our self-catering holiday caravans are next to this beautiful sandy beach. The water is safe and clean for paddling or swimming and the sand is great for sunbathing and sand castles. Walk for miles in either direction and visit neighbouring resort villages along the coast.
If you are lucky, you may find the fossil remains of ancient sea creatures or even elephants or petrified wood! You may spot an occasional seal swimming by or resting on the beach. The beach is also a popular location for sea fishing. Dogfish, Dabs, Skate, Place, Whiting and Cod are caught, with high tides during the evening providing the best sport. There are also plenty of course fishing locations nearby.
As Bacton is not classed as a resort the water quality is not tested by the Environment Agency but several neighbouring beaches qualify for a blue flag. The North Norfolk District Council tests the water quality at Bacton 20 times between May and September and the results for the last two years have classed the water quality as 'excellent'. See the Gallery for more photos of the beach, site, caravans and area.
Dogs have free access to the beach from October to April inclusive, but between 1st May and 30th September, they are not allowed on the beach directly opposite the site. However, just follow the footpath along the sea wall for about 150 yards in one direction or 300 yards in the other, to reach the beach outside the restricted area.
