Some of the best beaches in the world. Golden sand for miles and often no one there
From Burnham Breck 25 mins walk finds you at Overy Staithe Harbour. Here its iconic boat-house (see photo) and beautiful estuary lead to Scolt Head Island. Even on an August bank holiday you can find a completely deserted beach. Walk at low tide, or take the ferry when the water is in.
Also at low tide, walk a little way along golden sand from the boat house to ‘the hole’ a natural swimming pool with water warmed by sun and fuelled by so many fresh water springs you can almost drink it!
5 minutes away in Burnham Market the Coasthopper bus service runs 1/2 hourly to the east for Burnham Overy Staithe (without walking!), Holkham (beach Holkham Hall and Woods) and Wells, and to the west for Brancaster Staithe, Brancaster, Titchwell (RSPB) and Hunstanton. www.holkham.co.uk/downloads/Beach Walk.pdf www.holkham.co.uk/naturereserve
