Beautiful walks along coastal routes and sandy beaches

Suffolk is part of East Anglia, East England facing the North Sea, about 100 miles from London and a perfect rural location for a holiday break with your family and best friend.

Walberswick is an old Saxon village and previously important trading village until the beginning of the 20th century. Today, it has a small population which is swelled only by visitors to the region which offers quality holiday cottages and glorious unrestricted all year round sandy beaches, perfect for kite-surfing and dog-walks. The beach is long and sandy with the upper shore reaching into the sand dunes and into marshland, dotted with the famous black beach huts.

Further up the coast, about 8 miles is Southwold, a small town with a traditional fishing port and beautiful restored small pier structure. Part of the main beach is restricted for dog-walking, 1st May until 31 September each year, but the north beach, centered around the estuary mouth of the Blythe River is Denes Beach which welcomes dogs all year round.

Denes Beach is part shingle part sand and Southwold is fortunate to have lifeguarded beaches from early July to the start of September, home to the local RNLI lifeboat station so you can feel rest assured of water safety.

To the north of Southwold is a small village called Covehithe, a very pretty part sandy beach, again open all year round to dogs. The coastline has been eroded with access by foot, parking nearby with a short 15-minute walk to the beach via a bridleway and edge of farmland.

It’s well known for its organic tree structures sticking out of the sand adding to the popularity of discovering this gorgeous beach. A quiet location, needing a homemade picnic as the area is void of local cafes.

Before you travel you may like to use our useful Guides if you’re a new pet owner.

Don’t forget to take doggie towels to wipe off the sand at the end of walks and lots of fresh water and travel bowl for a thirsty dog. Please clear your mess up, leaving no rubbish and you may need both long and short leads and a muzzle if you prefer to use for your dog if the beach is busy.
