Suffolk Beach Guide

Why not make an early start and be among the first to welcome a new day?  Lowestoft, on Suffolk’s ‘Sunrise Coast’, is the most easterly point in the UK and the perfect place to be awed by one of Suffolk’s famous sunrises -  don’t forget your camera! 

The Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty stretches 50 miles and is a haven for nature enthusiasts with its ancient heathland, woods, estuaries rich in wildlife and variety of beach habitats.   

Coastal erosion continues to threaten areas of the Suffolk coast with the village of Dunwich being the most well known example. Once a thriving port, most of it has now been lost to the North Sea.  You can find out more about this fascinating settlement at Dunwich Museum.   

Many artists have been inspired by the Suffolk coast.  A massive scallop shell, created by local artist Maggi Hambling, can be found sitting majestically on the beach at Aldeburgh.  The 4m high sculpture is a tribute to Benjamin Britten who resided in the town and enjoyed strolling along the beach.  

The well-known beach resorts of Lowestoft, Southwold and Felixstowe all have piers stretching out over the sea, offering entertainment and traditional seaside fun for all the family - including rows of pretty Suffolk beach huts.  If you visit Aldeburgh then fish and chips is a ‘must’, eaten from the paper, sitting on the sea wall! 

The seashore is relatively shallow along the Suffolk coast, taking the strength out of really large waves, so the beaches are generally family-friendly with Lowestoft, Southwold and Walberswick being the best Suffolk beaches for beginner surfers - especially between October and March.  

PROS

  • Many dog friendly beaches
  • Good for fishing and watersports

Couldn’t have asked for a better day, last few days of summer spent at Jabba was the perfect way to end it! Thank you so much, you really have thought of everything. We will be back this time next year for more fun on southwold beach and definitely in Jabba the hut! We especially liked all the games under the day bed! Thanks again :)

We hired Jabba for the day to celebrate a birthday. It was everything we hoped it would be and all the family had a brilliant time. Jabba was exactly as advertised, clean, well stocked with tea and coffee, plus all the crockery and cutlery you could ever need! Communication was quick and easy throughout. I’m sure we’ll be back!

5 stars- very relaxing, everything you need, near the pier and loos (perfectly located) and gets the last bit of sun! Perfect day for me and my family. Thank you so much for providing a mini kitchen and the perfect spot for an afternoon nap- see you next summer Jabba.

We had the most marvellous time at Jabba the Beach Hut. We've never used a beach hut before and were really excited about it. It exceeded any hopes we had. The weather was fantastic, the hut's facilities were fantastic, it's closeness to the pier, car park, toilet and beach were great as none of us are as mobile as we used to be. We will be back again, hopefully!

Everything we needed was already in the beach hut and in good condition. Jaba the Hut was very clean and tidy. There was one short shower during our break and all of our family enjoyed sheltering inside with a lovely freshly made cup of tea! We are looking forward to our net stay in Jabba the Hut
