Explore beautiful seaside towns & villages in Great Yarmouth

Discover an incredible coastline in Great Yarmouth

The borough of Great Yarmouth stretches for 15 miles along the coast and up to 9 miles inland, encompassing some beautiful Norfolk countryside. The hustle and bustle of Great Yarmouth seafront and town centre is offset by the small villages, towns and hamlets that can be found in the area immediately surrounding one of the UK's most popular seaside resorts.

All along the coastline, seaside towns and villages hug the wide sandy beaches, perfect for lazing away on a summer's day or for a brisk stroll in winter.

Just to the south, the popular seaside town of Gorleston-on-Sea with stunning cliff top views, wide esplanade, and a beautiful sandy bay is a firm favourite with families, locals and visitors.

Just to the north, the village seaside resort of Hemsby is packed with accommodation and attractions and a welcoming, laid back pub just where the village ends and the sandy beach starts.

Hopton-on-Sea, Scratby and California also have a great range of accommodation and access to a great stretch of beach.

One of the smaller seaside villages is Winterton-on-Sea, just next to a nature reserve which is famous for Litte Terns on an often almost deserted beach - check out the café for delicious cake.
