Hunstanton Beach Beach

Hunstanton, Norfolk

The only coastal town in East Anglia to face west. Hunstanton is known for its famous red and white striped cliffs. The tide retreats to expose a large sandy beach which can become crowded in the summer.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point (Hunstanton) and may not be accurate for this beach. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use.

Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
