Travel website, Condé Nast Traveller has named North Norfolk beach, Sea Palling in its list of the ‘UK’s Top Ten Blue Flag Beaches’ for 2019.

Sea Palling was awarded the prestigious accolade in May 2019 when Keep Britain Tidy, which runs the Blue Flags scheme announced the winners.

As well as Sea Palling, beaches in Cromer, East Runton, Mundesley, Sheringham and West Runton have all been awarded a prestigious Blue Flag for another year – the 45-mile North Norfolk coastline is home to half of all the Blue Flag beaches in the east of England!

The awards are given out only to those beaches that have the highest quality of water, facilities, environmental education and management, with superb levels of cleanliness and safety. It means the hundreds of thousands of residents and visitors who visit North Norfolk’s beaches each year can be sure they are enjoying top-notch destinations.

North Norfolk is the only district in the county that has been awarded any Blue Flags this year.

As well as the Blue Flags, the beach at Wells, which is owned by the Holkham Estate but jointly managed by NNDC and the RNLI, won a Seaside Award, which guarantees visitors a clean, safe, attractive and well-managed coastal stretch.
