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

Lovely, well presented and maintained beach hut. The location was perfect with amazing views. The inner glass doors were a welcome addition when the weather turned. Extremely well equipped. We enjoyed our stay very much.
