Wander sandy paths, hike along parts of the Suffolk Coast Path, and watch for diverse bird species like the redshank in the estuaries. Nearby campsites accommodate both tents and caravans, with amenities including electrical hookups, picnic areas, and firepits. On a camping trip during colder months, find something different and stay in a glamping pod that’s fully heated and insulated.

Expect amenities such as fresh water points, waste disposal, and electric hookups.

The heath, ablaze with purple heather in late summer, is ideal for serene walks, while the pebbly shingle beach with rare plant and wildlife species offers campers a leisurely stroll along the coast. Birdwatching enthusiasts can spot a variety of species in the area, such as the stonechat, skylark, and Dartford warbler. Coastal campsites provide amenities like toilets, washrooms, and beach access, while holiday cottage rentals are also available along the waterfront.
