Corton Beach

Visit Corton Beach

Corton Beach, just north of Lowestoft, on the Suffolk coast, is an unspoilt stretch of sand and shingle beach. This is a great location for both nature lovers and those looking for family attractions. The beach has dunes, lots of space, it rarely feels busy, and is is safe for swimming.

Corton was an officially designated a naturist beach from 1979 to 2009, but today is a favourite with dog walkers and holiday makers.

Corton beach is dog friendly all year round, they love the beach and on the cliffs behind the beach you can explore the Corton Woods Nature Reserve.

For family fun, the Pleasurewood Hills Family Theme Park is here too. A family amusement park with thrill rides and shows.

Stop in and grab a coffee at Dip Farm on Corton Rd, head to the beach or explore the area.

The village of Corton is on the county border of Suffolk and Norfolk, and Great Yarmouth is a 20 minute drive up the coast.
