Mundesley Beach

Home | Explore Norfolk | Beaches | Mundesley Beach

A family friendly beach about 8 miles southeast of Cromer, Mundesley Beach is long and sandy with safe swimming at low tide and all the amenities and charm of a popular seaside resort.

The beach is fairly narrow, particularly when the tide comes in, but it is child-friendly and good for swimming, paddling and sandcastle building.

Surfing is a big thing in Mundesley, with many devotees heading for the waves in the summer.  There are surf shops and if you fancy giving it a go, you can book a lesson too. Check out Glide Surf School for more information.

Maritime Museum

Cliffs form the backdrop to the beach with pretty cliff top gardens where visitors can shelter and sit. In the clifftop gardens is the Mundesley Maritime Museum which is believed to be the smallest museum in the UK.

Displays include lifeboat exploits, ship wrecks, fishing industry, maritime artefacts and locally discovered fossils. The former railway branch lines 1898-1964 are also depicted. The 1st floor has been reinstated as a coastguard lookout of the 1930/40 era containing tide clock, fog horn and powerful binoculars, also modern equipment (radar, VHF radio) as the NCI keeps a visual watch providing a service.
