Two of North Norfolk’s beaches have featured in a Sunday Times’ list of the UK’s best. The beaches at Sea Palling and Holme-next-the-Sea were listed at 17 and 14 respectively in the top 20 selection by the Times’ chief travel writer Chris Haslam.
Mr Haslam wrote about Holme: “When the SUV’s are nose-to-tail into Brancaster, Burnham and other locations on the Norfolk Coast, Holme will be empty. (Note: Empty? That is not the case in the summer months. DH.)
“Just northeast of Old Hunstanton, it’s a beach that has kept its salt marsh, sand, and enormous sky reasonably secret.”
His opinion of the beach at Sea Palling was: “Spotlessly clean beach of golden sand” and “nine gorgeously sheltered bays”.
I agree with Chris Haslam’s comments, however, what about Holkham and Wells-next-the-Sea? What is your opinion?
