  • Gunton Sands (Corton Beach)

    The beach is about a mile north of Britain's most easterly point and it can be very windy so try to have enough hands free for a windbreak! An old local saying is "It'll be a warm wind when the sun comes out". Alas in recent years due to a combination of coastal erosion here and coastal defence works further along the coast we have seen stones replacing the sand. However, the beach is well used kept clean and is friendly. The access to the sea is steep and can be rough, but on a summers day it is an easy place to get to. This beach became 'de-designated' as a naturist beach on 1st November 2009. However, the byelaw requiring clothing to be worn on all beaches except Corton was revoked on 1st June 2009 therefore one can be unclothed on all beaches within the Waveney District without being in breach of the byelaws.

    Heading towards Great Yarmouth, after Lowestoft lighthouse turn right onto Corton Road (B1385), this is the third road at a multiple choice junction. Continue past all the houses and at the Pitch and Putt course enter the FREE car park ample spaces and toilets so please do not park on the road. Cross the road and walk down the concrete path (Tramp's Alley) and turn left walking for about 200 yards along the beach.Free Car park. There are bollards across the entrance to deter travellers from setting up camp but there is a way through for cars.

    This beach was de-designated as a naturist beach in 2009 by Waveney District Council. The beach is frequented by families with young children. Police will be called and respond to incidences of exhibitionist / indecency behaviours.

    I think that you've got a typo in your above discription. You say:

    "This beach became 'de-designated' as a naturist beach on 1st November 2009. However, the byelaw requiring clothing to be worn on all beaches except Corton was revoked on 1st June 2009 therefore one can be unclothed on all beaches within the Waveney District without being in breach of the byelaws".

    Whereas I think that you mean:

    'This beach became 'de-designated' as a naturist beach on 1st November 2009 because the byelaw requiring clothing to be worn on all beaches except Corton was revoked on 1st June 2009 therefore one can be unclothed on all beaches within the Waveney District without being in breach of the byelaws'.
