The beach at Wells-next-the-Sea is one of the hidden gems of the Norfolk coast. Driving along the road to the car park there are few clues of the beautiful views that lie beyond. From the car park, take one of the footpaths for about a mile over this tree-covered ridge to find one of the most secluded and self-contained beaches on the Norfolk coast.
The character of the beach is entirely dependent on the tide so its worthwhile checking the times. At low tide you can’t even see the sea just acres of golden sandy beach as the water retreats so far; at high tide it laps just a few yards from the line of the brightly painted beach huts that nestle under the trees.
