This sand and shingle beach, backed by low dunes and marshland, stretches from the north side of the mouth of the River Blyth up to Southwold.
The southern end of the beach has a lifeboat station and a lifeboat museum, behind which is a small caravan park. At the northern end of the beach are a number of beach huts and it is backed by a promenade.
The water quality at The Denes is good and there is lifeguard cover during the summer season. This beach is popular with windsurfers, canoeists and bathers.
Southwold itself has plenty of cafes, restaurants and other facilities. A pay-for car park can be found on Ferry Road and there are public toilets at two locations along this road.
