The Suffolk Coast has no shortage of romantic shorelines to explore hand in hand with your loved one. And when the beaches are this beautiful, why not let nature itself set the stage for romance? Here are a few we’d always be in the mood for:
One of the most secluded on The Suffolk Coast, Covehithe Beach is the ultimate romantic escape away from bustling crowds. Marvel together at the rugged cliffs, weathered by time and tide, and the hauntingly beautiful sand-blasted fallen tree trunks which you’ll find strewn along the wide, wild beach. Accessing Covehithe Beach is an adventure in itself, adding to the allure of its seclusion. Park your car near the village church, and then follow the signposted single track to reach the untamed beauty of Covehithe’s golden sands.
Or you could head to Dunwich Beach, a serene haven perfect for lovers of seaside strolls. Choose between a walk along the shingle shoreline, or for a more exhilarating experience, venture along the clifftop path. Owned by the National Trust, this beautiful designated National Landscape will provide the backdrop to a Valentine’s Day to cherish. Nature enthusiasts will revel in the National Trust’s signposted heathland walks, which offer glimpses of resident bird species like the Dartford warbler and red-listed skylark.
With its iconic colourful beach huts lining the golden sands, Southwold exudes charm and romance at every turn. Choose from the traditional seaside experience at Southwold Pier Beach, with all the fun of a charming date on the pretty pier, or the wilder Southwold Denes Beach for a quieter stroll.
Or fill a flask and pack a blanket and sit amongst the dunes and marram grass at Walberswick - An idyllic choice for a Valentine’s Day beach walk!
