Idyllic Suffolk is not all about rolling hills as per Constables paintings, we are lucky to be within a short drive of some of Britain’s best beaches and coastal towns.
The Suffolk Coast is a diverse and breath-taking stretch of coastline, comprising of sand and shingle beaches. It runs from the beach gardens of Felixstowe, through the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that encompasses both wild and manicured beaches, sand dunes and beach huts, piers and promenades, to the coast of Lowestoft and Southwold.
Nowadays, whether it be for crabbing, wind surfing, sun bathing, dog walking, or swimming, Suffolk’s coastline continues to attract visitors every year seeking the beautiful views and pretty seaside towns.
With award-winning fish and chips, clean water and traditional seaside amusements, towns such as Southwold and Aldeburgh make for a lovely day out, whilst the wild beaches of Orford and Covehithe, quiet gems on the Suffolk coast, are perfect for dog walking.
Winter means that the beach isn’t just a place to visit in the summer sun. There’s nothing more refreshing than a stroll along Dunwich’s shingle or Kessingland’s marshland, wrapped up in your winter woolies.
