The Burnhams are considered by many to be the jewel in the crown of North Norfolk. Burnham Overy Staithe is a haven for sailing enthusiasts and has a well-to-do, characterful atmosphere. A channel leads out to the sea and a twenty minute walk takes visitors out to a wonderful, unspoilt beach, which itself links to Holkham and Wells-Next-The-Sea beaches further along the coast. Take care with the tides on this walk though, to avoid being cut off. The path is flat, as you would expect and you should reach the beach in less than half an hour. It is well worth it, completely unspoilt and backed by dunes. The sheer scale and size of the magnificent blue sky and the scudding white clouds is wonderful.

Well worth the walk out to the beach near Burnham Overy Staithe.
