Blakeney Point Walk

NR25 7RB

You can take a boat to see the seal colony at Blakeney Point in North Norfolk, but many walkers prefer to discover the iconic shingle spit of the Blakeney National Nature Reserve on foot – and it's a walk which showcases the very best of this stretch of the North Norfolk Coast, starting at the car park at Cley Beach and following the beach and shingle ridge to the dunes at the far end. Here you'll find the National Trust’s sheltered blue Lifeboat House, from where a wooden boardwalk leads to the beach by Blakeney Harbour, where you can spot the seals on the tidal sands at any time of year, and particularly  between November and January, when the seal pups are born. The rest of the year walkers stroll along the pit to see birds, with thousands of sandwich terns breeding here between March to August – also a glorious sight.
