Miles of average Norfolk beachbreak over sand and flint bottom, but the large pier gives banks some shape. The west side works on large NW swells but it’s the east side that gets wedgy rights running back into the pier on any N-E swells, plus slow mushy lefts. Further east, the rock groyne can have a rare punchy left.
Very strong rips and longshore drift at peak of the tides. Water quality used to be horrendous but has improved recently. Groynes and pier structure to watch out for, flint pebbles can be very sharp in the high tide shorepound. Pay to park by the pier or find the free roadside spots.
