More Information...

Beyond the lowlands of north Norfolk is a strange world of waterways, marshes and lagoons encompassed by a 4 mile long spit of shingle and sand dunes. Designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), Blakeney Point is now a National Nature Reserve managed by the National Trust. The majority of visitors coming here are not beach-goers but walkers and wildlife enthusiasts. The area is well known for its plant life, seals, and birds such as avocets, ringed plovers and little terns. Whilst the far end of the nature reserve is permanently closed to visitors there is still plenty of space to explore and get a good view. Seal watching boat trips are available from Morston, along with guided birdwatching trips. A visitor centre now occupies the quirky old wooden lifeboat station. The sheltered waterways behind Blakeney Point have been used as a natural harbour for hundreds of years. These days it is a popular spot for leisure craft.
