North Norfolk's Breathtaking Beaches

Enjoy our beautiful coastline

Norfolk Norfolk is blessed with stunning coastal scenery and glorious beaches. With numerous walking and cycling routes in and around Wells, here at The Globe we are the perfect base from which to explore the beautiful surrounds. Wildlife is abundant, the scenes spectacular - what are you waiting for?
Wells beach
The beautiful sandy beach, with its pine trees, sand dunes and colourful beach huts, is Wells' most famous feature. Walk for 1.5 miles or so along the golden sands and you'll end up in Holkham. Gwyneth Paltrow walked across this very beach during the closing scenes of Shakespeare in Love. Whether you decide to collect shells, fly a kite or build a sand castle, this is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and deservedly so! For nature lovers, you can spot oyster catchers and ringed plovers, who nest on the beach, along with some common and little terns.

Holkham beach
The beach at Holkham is one of the most unspoilt and beautiful stretches of sand in the country. Behind the shoreline lies a semi-circular basin, which, at very high tides, rapidly fills to form a spectacular shallow lagoon. Holkham Beach is also part of one of the largest National Nature Reserves in the country. It is managed by Natural England in partnership with the Holkham Estate and is home to many rare species of flora and fauna.
