Season: spring

Located just to the north of Great Yarmouth, the beach at Caister-on-Sea is quieter than its popular neighbour.  It’s a fine dog-walking spot, with no restrictions and access is good, with plenty of parking.  Featuring both an independent lifeboat station (see interview below) and a visitor centre, facilities are good.  Despite the lack of lifeguard cover, bathing is safe and the water is clean.  I recommend this beach for a long, leisurely stroll, keeping your eyes out for seals from the colony further up the coast.

    What the beach means to me?
    I love the sound of the waves rolling over the shore, the sound of the sea gulls and other bird life. People walking along the beach on their own or with dogs. The smell of salt water in the air.
    I would find somewhere to sit and gaze out to sea watching the boats go past, large cargo boats going to distant shores and small sailing boats, people in speed boats and various sailing craft.
    I find it mesmerizing just gazing out across the blue yonder, especially when you are on holiday and have time to do this.
