Heacham is a thriving coastal village with two great beaches, nominated north and south that actually face west! which affords world class, beautiful sunsets all year round. The flat sands and calm waters are a magnet for fans of kite flying, kite surfing, jet skiing, windsurfing and other outdoor pursuits and with a wide bay of nearly 20 miles, there is room for everyone. With plenty of local shops, pubs and restaurants, Heacham is also home to the famous Norfolk Lavender Farm, which includes a great farm shop showcasing local produce. Along the coast find Hunstanton and Old Hunstanton where the eye catching cliffs are a great spot for fossil hunting and rock pooling or take a trip on an amphibious vehicle to seek out the local seal population. Visitors are welcome to the championship links course at Hunstanton Golf Club and the nearby RSPB Reserves at Titchwell and Snettisham attract bird watchers year round but particularly in the autumn & winter months when many birds migrate to this part of Norfolk. Becoming known as the Royal coast, don't forget a visit to the Royal Estate at Sandringham, or venture a little further afield to discover the maritime past of King's Lynn, with so much to do, one trip to this great part of the county is never going to be enough!
