Covehithe Beach

The Suffolk Coast's remotest beach

One of The Suffolk Coast's wild beaches, Covehithe is a beach where you can escape the crowds and get away from it all.

The beach is reached by a single track, so is only accessible on foot. Make the walk from the village, through fields and along a footpath and you are greeted with a golden stretch of sand framed by imposing crumbling cliffs.

This is a wild beach and so care needs to be taken to respect the wildlife and the environment; with Benacre's lagoon and conservation area sitting to the south, the beach is dotted with the North Sea's offerings; sand blasted tree trunks of trees that once lined the cliff top.
