Whether you're heading to Suffolk's coast to enjoy all the fun of the fair in a traditional seaside town, want to take to the water kite-surfing or power boating, or prefer to find a peaceful, deserted beach, you'll find no shortage of good hotels, town centre guesthouses and rural B&Bs to choose from. Beaches in Suffolk vary from great expanses of sand and shingle, with wildlife rich estuaries for spotting rare birds and mammals, to traditional seaside towns and fishing villages, where you'll find plenty of places to buy a bucket and spade or sample freshly caught seafood.
Suffolk Beach Hotels for All the Family
Stay in a hotel in the popular seaside town of Aldeburgh and you'll find lots of activities for all the family. From taking your pet pooch for a walk along the beach (seasonal restrictions for dogs on some beaches) with a stop off for lunch in a proper old-fashioned pub, to taking command of a rowing boat on The Meare boating lake, you'll find traditional beach activities aplenty. And of course no trip to the seaside is complete without a delicious fish and chip supper made with locally caught fish and locally grown potatoes! Or stay in a guesthouse or bed and breakfast near the well-known beach resort of Southwold, where you can still take a stroll along the late-Victorian pier or play on the Blue Flag beach. Suffolk is also home to plenty of rare wildlife, and you may even be lucky enough to hear bitterns booming from their home at nearby RSPB Minsmere nature reserve.
