Hunstanton has the unusual distinction of being an east coast resort that faces west and as a result the beaches get more than their fair share of sun with spectacular sunsets which you can really appreciate from Magazine Wood. There are two sides to Hunstanton, or Sunny Hunny as it’s affectionately known.
There is the elegant old Victorian town with its Esplanade Gardens and rather sedate air of days-gone-by, when people flocked to take the water ‘for medicinal purposes’. Then there is the lively, buzzing family resort, with donuts and candy floss, ice cream and donkey rides and a whole funfair of amusements to keep you entertained!
Hunstanton boasts famous stripy cliffs and a fabulous beach, which has a Good Beach Award for safety and cleanliness. You can walk from one resort to the other, so you can enjoy a morning of fun and activity at the crazy golf or Sea Life Sanctuary and then spend a lazy afternoon lying on the beach beneath the rambling sand dunes. If exhilarating outdoor sports are more your kind of thing, the sea provides a vast playground for sailing, jet skiing and windsurfing, with Hunstanton offering excellent wind conditions for this popular sport.
