A storm surge since my last visit had covered the car park with some of the shingle beach, a striking change. This was a tranquil day, though, as visitors and fishermen enjoyed the sunshine, next to the sea. This beach draws your eye back to the salt marsh and the pretty village beyond. There is a harmony of elements and the built environment. You can walk by the sea for miles from here in either direction, losing yourself in the subtle greys, blues and whites. Highly recommended.
Our timeless relationship with the sea.

Reflections on change from Ken, Alan and Dave.
Salthouse beach sits to the east of Cley-Next-The-Sea, in front of a salt marsh in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s popular with sea anglers and bird watchers, as it attracts migratory birds, en route from the Arctic to Africa and visa versa. There is tranquility here, punctuated by the rhythmic pull of the sea on the shingle beach, as the tide ebbs and flows.
