The best beach activities for families to enjoy when on holiday in sunny Norfolk

Fun in the sunshine is easy to organise especially in a destination such as Norfolk where there are a number of things to do. This lovely county in England has beautiful beaches that offer travellers the chance to relax with young ones or try out some exciting activities. The simplest thing to do when in the area is just head out for a leisurely walk. This is probably the first thing that every tourist should do when they go on holiday, as then they can get used the area. It is good to get some fresh air and travellers can have a wander along the pretty coastal paths, where they can take in the picturesque views and fascinating wildlife.

There is also the Coasthopper bus that runs along the North Norfolk coast that is a superb way to discover a number of beaches. The buses arrive every half an hour at various points between Hunstanton and Cromer. The best pastimes for young ones are to have a play on the beach and build sandcastles or collect pebbles that can later be made into artwork. This part of the world has many beaches where young travellers can fly a kite. Tourists should encourage their children to make the kite in the morning at their accommodation, and then head to a beach such as ones in Hunstanton and Brancaster to attempt to make them fly.

A brilliant pastime is to go gillying or what is commonly known as crabbing, where all that is needed is a bucket, a crab line and bait. This traditional coastal activity is fun for both young ones and adults, especially because families get to spend quality time together. Some of the best locations in the county include Blakeney and Cromer, or really anywhere that is along the North Norfolk Coast. Crabbing involves hoisting the beautiful little sea creatures up and into a bucket of seawater for a temporary period. Once all the people involved in this activity have compared their finds then the crabs are released back into the sea. There are many top places to book Norfolk accommodation near the seaside that are ideal for families

The Harper North Norfolk Hotel is located in the magnificent village of Langham close to a number of attractions and landmarks. It has beautiful rooms with oak floors, comfortable four-poster beds and modern amenities such as an LED television and complimentary Wi-Fi internet. The large bathrooms contain monsoon or rainforest showers, as well as lovely products for travellers to use on the trip. There are two superb restaurants on-site including Stanley’s and The Stove, which both offer excellent menus with fresh and delicious food.

Another brilliant thing to do with young ones is geocaching that is a treasure-hunting game where tourists use a GPS to seek items. This is great for children as they can dress up as pirates or detectives, and locate the so-called treasure in a certain area. Geocaches are waterproof containers that have a logbook, pen and small items of treasure that are hidden in a number of places across the world. Travellers can join in the fun of locating these and then recording their own unique geocache number in the logbook. There are a range of these locations around the Norfolk area where children and adults can go searching.
