East Runton Beach

Visit East Runton Beach

Just short walk along the coast from Cromer, East Runton Beach with sloping sand backed by sandstone cliffs is a charming holiday destination on the Norfolk coast. In 2017 East Runton Beach was awarded Blue Flag status, ensuring high standards of cleanliness and safety, as well as water quality.

The beach is great for picnics, kite flying and when the tide is out, searching for fossils or rockpooling with the kids. The area is a wonderful spot for a caravan or camping holiday with caravan parks and camp sites overlooking the sea front.

East Runton is also one of the North Norfolk Coast premiere surfing spots with lifeguards on duty during the holiday season. Look out for the Surfers’ Memorial on the cliff top!

East Runton village has plenty of amenities including shops, a popular Tea Room serving all day breakfast and local fish and chip shop. For food and drink holidaymakers can enjoy the family friendly The Fishing Boat pub with a large garden, off Beach road on the High Street and Sammy’s Bar and Grill.

The village is situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty with interesting local places to visit including Felbrigg Hall, Roman Camp Heath and Incleborough Hill.

East Runton beach is great for long walks with the dogs all year round.
