Beach Bonkers is on a mission to take everyone beachcombing to find their own amazing treasures on Suffolk's special shingle beaches.

A Little Bit More ...

No-one starts a beachcomb knowing what they’ll find and no-one finishes a beachcomb disappointed.  And no-one does it without wanting to do it all over again as soon as they can. Good job there's two tides a day to cast up new treasures! 

Every beach find tells a story -- whether it’s the egg cases of creatures we never see, driftwood eaten by hungry worms, sharks’ teeth & fossils that are millions of years old, and glass frosted by the stones & waves. 

Although we have a lot of shingle in Suffolk this is a rare and fragile habitat worldwide that's full of specially adapted plants and wildlife, as well as the evidence of the lives of our sea creatures.

What's In A Name?

A friend once said "You're bonkers, but lovely." So I thought Bonkers about Beachcombing might be a cool name but it's a bit long.  Another friend said how about "Beach Bonkers"? And that was that.
