The criteria for a Blue Flag beach specifies the importance of safety, cleanliness and sustainability. Not only are the waters patrolled by lifeguards, but parents can rest assured that the comparatively low tide of helps ensure safe swimming.
“Unspoilt” is a word often used by visitors to describe Mundesley, and this is immediately apparent from the coast inward.

Lacking the commercial drive of similar coastal areas of Norfolk, Mundesley’s quaint surroundings are ideal for those seeking a cosy, picturesque destination for their autumn getaway.

Guaranteed highlights include a coastal walk in Brancaster and Burnham Deepdale focused on Roman, medieval and Second World War heritage, and the Beery Walk, in which participants can sample beers inspired by the surroundings between Felbrigg and Cromer.
The historical estates and expansive woodland areas in North Norfolk lend themselves almost disturbingly well to Halloween.
