  • Dunwich Beach car park Beach Road, Saxmundham IP17 3EN (map)

Dunwich Beach is particularly good for finding beautifully banded flint stones.

Meeting point: Dunwich Beach car park,  Beach Road, Saxmundham IP17 3EN

Please join me ten minutes before the beachcomb begins so we can start promptly. Sorry, but if you are late you won't be able to join us.

Do I need to book? No. 

How much does it cost? £4 for each person. 

What age is this suitable for? All ages. Beachcombing is suitable for children and adults alike.  Hunting for treasure on our beaches is addictive whatever your age, so all are welcome. Children must be supervised at all times by their accompanying adults.

What should I wear? It can be windy and cold on the beach even on a sunny day so wrap up with lots of layers for warmth and against the wind. Please wear shoes suitable for walking on shingle - flip-flops or open-toed sandals will be uncomfortable.

How long will it last?  An hour and a half.

What if it's horrible weather? The weather can be very changeable but the beachcomb will go ahead unless it's torrential rain or high winds make the beach dangerous.

Is there parking? There is a large car park with donations requested to go to the church and local charities. 

Can I bring my dog? Well behaved dogs on a short lead are welcome. 

I can’t make this date, will there be others? Yes, there are Beach Bonkers beachcombing events throughout the year. 

This event has been supported by a grant from the Suffolk Secrets AONB fund.
