  • Sizewell Beach Sizewell Gap, Sizewell IP16 4UH (map)

Join Beach Bonkers on Sizewell beach. Learn about our special Suffolk shingle beaches and the plants that live in them; beachcomb for your own treasures and hear the stories they tell us. Sizewell beach is a great spot to find coralline crag, full of fossils. There will also be an opportunity to see some more unusual beachcombing finds.

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

Meeting point: The large brick toilet block in Sizewell Beach car park, Sizewell Beach, Sizewell Gap, Sizewell IP16 4UH

Do I need to book? No.

How much does it cost? £5 for each person.

How long will it last? Two hours.

What age is this suitable for? All ages except very young ones. (For younger children please call Kate on 0751 255 7200 to discuss suitability.) Beachcombing is suitable for children and adults alike. Treasuring 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 layers for warmth and against the wind. Please wear shoes suitable for walking on shingle.

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 pay & display car park immediately next to Sizewell beach.

Can I bring my dog? Yes, well-behaved dogs that are kept on a short lead throughout the walk are welcome.

If you have limited mobility a walk on Felixstowe beach might be more suitable as we cover a much shorter distance and there's plenty of opportunity to sit down.

I can't make this date, will there be other walks. Yes, check my events page to find out dates and details of my other beachcombs.
