We spent a very relaxing sunny morning on the beach in Brancaster Bay. The car park was £2 for 2 hours, but £4 for half a day. The beach is popular with tourists, but it does stretch for miles, so it is very easy to...More

Not a lot to say about Brancaster beach. In a good way. I love this beach. A simple, sandy beach on the north Norfolk coast. If you want a relaxing, clean, sandy escape then Brancaster is the place to go. I like Hunstanton when i...More

We were here for the very hot weekend - though very busy , it didn’t spoil just how beautiful this beach is - we walk every morning at 5am and it’s stunning watching the tide come in and the sun rise!

We have been visiting the beach at Brancaster for many, many years with our dogs past and present, we along with our 4 legged friends absolutely love it here. The beach is flat and goes on for miles. A must visit for all.

What an amazing beach. Miles of flat sand. Truly flat sea. Dog friendly all year round. Glorious. Everyone just happy and relaxed walking their pets together. Small fee to park but we'll worth it.

Sorry I do not know & did not see anyone riding during our visit. Looking at the size of the beach I can not see why it would not be OK. There is a golf club at the entrance to the beach perhaps the y could help?
