Beaches in Suffolk

For the ultimate coastal camping holiday, surely you can't beat a spell on Britain's beautiful sunrise coast?

Suffolk offers a world of unforgettable experiences, starting with glorious sunrises at Lowestoft - Britain's most easterly town - and finishing with classic seaside fish and chips on Southwold pier.

Somewhere in-between you can enjoy traditional family entertainment in seaside amusement arcades, have fun with your four-legged friend on The Denes, or follow Felixstowe's numerous walking and cycling trails.

The Camping and Caravanning Club has one campsite within easy reach of Suffolk's best beaches - Kessingland Campsite, which is close to the traditional seaside favourites of Lowestoft and Southwold.

Where better to enjoy the beautiful sunrise coast than Lowestoft Beach, Britain's most easterly town? The beaches of Lowestoft (pictured) are within 10-15 minutes' drive of Kessingland Campsite and serve up glorious Blue Flag sands, pier attractions and Victorian seafront gardens. Rich in marine heritage and bubbling with family attractions, Lowestoft - with its dune-backed beach of Gunton Denes and the family favourites to the North and South of Claremont Pier - promises a fantastic day out for all ages.

Be sure to visit Ness Point in Lowestoft, the most easterly point in the British Isles, for the perfect sunrise experience. It's located north of the town centre just off Gas Works Road, and is marked by a Euroscope. While you're there, glance up at 'Gulliver' - Britain's tallest wind turbine - which towers over Ness Point at 126 metres tall.

A little further afield from Kessingland Campsite is the superb coastline of Southwold. The Denes is a lovely laid-back sand and shingle beach, sandwiched between the town of Southwold and the mouth of the river Blyth. The Denes is a dog-friendly beach all year round, and there are also coastal walking trails in and around Southwold.
