Season: summer

A storm surge had covered the car park with some of the shingle beach, a striking change since my last visit.  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 between nature 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.

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 attracts migratory birds, en route from the Arctic to Africa and vice versa.  There is tranquility here, punctuated by the rhythmic pull of the sea on the shingle beach, as the tide ebbs and flows.

One thought on “Salthouse beach

  1. Heather and David

    A place to escape the pressures of everyday life and experience the uplifting emotion of engaging with nature;

    somewhere to unwind and appreciate the beauty and diversity of the natural world, admire ever changing seascapes, big Norfolk skies and magnificent star gazing;

    a place to listen to the energy of the sea as waves roll over the shingle with the sound of gulls and waders calling as they pass overhead;

    somewhere to enjoy the privilege of “being in the moment”.
