Lovely beach, if you want to take your dogs, after a short walk, you come to the dog friendly beach, where you can walk for miles. The sand is hard and ripply when the tide is out and our dogs just loved it.

Cromer is an impressive place to visit and found the day at the old fashioned seaside great with only 2 chip shops though the queues were massive. The beach had pebbles in places but smoother sand when the tide went out. But sadly let down...More

We enjoyed a beautiful walk in the autumn sun alongside the golf course and even sat down for 30 mins with dog just to soak in the views. When the weather is good and you’re not in a rush with great company then there’s sometimes...More

There had been a tremendous storm the night before so we were not surprised to see lots of stones and gravel along the promenade. The walk down from the top is very steep if you take the steps, but there are easier routes to take.

Early morning walk in October. Was lovely and calm and I loved the colours of the beach huts. The pier looks amazing and I'm sure I'll be back to do some geocaches here soon!

Very nice beach with a great pier to visit. Toilets are sign posted quite far away from the toilets which is annoying but I think they're always open which is good. Come with my niece and nephew (2 and 6) and they had a great...More

Very clean beach indeed and well kept costal area around the beach itself. Cromer is quaint but a nice trip out for the afternoon. A very nice place to visit and plenty to eat!!! Great chip shops and ice cream shops! Clean with little rubbish...More

Gorgeous beach, long stretches of sand, big pier, amusements, ice cream, candy floss, buckets and spades, all the things you’d associate with a day at the beach. Would definitely recommend.

Brilliant day at the beach! Clean sand, clear water and lifeguards on the shore line. Great for rock pools and crabs! The beach is huge so theres never a shortage of decent spits! My girls loved it.

Waves can crash a bit at high tide but on the lifeboat side it’s much calmer and a more sloping beach with surfing and swimming.. also some nice cafes opening up !

It was an experience going to Cromer after all I had heard about the place. The fact they are famous for their Crabs is not the best reason but to be honest it is the only reason so expect to be there for 2 hours...More
