California Beach - Norfolk
© JThomas and licensed for reuse under this Licence

A little slice of California in Norfolk! Well it’s a lovely sandy beach, surf isn’t too great and the sun doesn’t always shine, but besides that…

Located just down the coast from the less exotic sounding Scratby, California beach sits at the foot of sloping cliffs beyond which is a vast expanse of caravan parks. This means the beach is never as quiet as it might be, but it also means there are plenty of facilities.

Access to the beach is down a slope with steps at the bottom.
