Great Yarmouth, often known to locals as Yarmouth, is a coastal town in Norfolk, England. It is located at the mouth of the River Yare, 20 miles (30 km) east of Norwich. The town has been a seaside resort since 1760, and is the gateway from the Norfolk Broads to the North Sea. For hundreds of years it was a major fishing port, depending mainly on the herring fishery, but its fishing industry suffered a steep decline in the second half of the 20th century, and has now all but disappeared. The discovery of oil in the North Sea in the 1960s led to a flourishing oil rig supply industry, and today it services offshore natural gas rigs. More recently, the development of renewable energy sources, especially offshore wind power, has created further opportunities for support services. A wind farm of 30 generators is within sight of the town on the Scroby Sands. The town has a beach and two piers.Wikipedia

Great Yarmouth Beach, Great Yarmouth Reviews - Write a Review
Love the views. The beach has receded over the years and increased in height towards the piers! They should update the entertainment and what's on offer in the shops. Out of season is getting much more popular these days so, should have more for all more of the time.
Lovely beach although there are patches with quite a lot of litter. Far nicer when the summer season quietens down. Great for having a quiet walk.
Lovely vast area of sandy beach. Choosing a different area of beach can provide a peaceful walk or a lively area for kids to play. Clean beach with some areas providing wooden walkways to avoid sandy shoes! Lovely views even if not choosing to walk on the beach.
Has some stone areas and grass dunes Plenty of space and views are great. Has places to hire deck chairs for a cost which is not too much for the day
Fabulous beach and sea front. Clean, tidy with easy access.
