Sea Palling has been named as one of the top 10 Blue Flag beaches in the UK for 2019 by Condé Nast Traveller magazine.
Blue Flags are awarded annually to the world's cleanest beaches - those with crystal-clear waters, good public access and the highest environmental standards. The lifestyle magazine unearthed the less obvious and most beautiful Blue Flag sands.
In its entry for Sea Palling, it said: "The sand is softer and the sea is calmer than at many of Sea Palling's neighbouring beaches.
"This is thanks to the nine offshore reefs that protect the area from flooding. It's perfect for family days out, as there are cafés, a pub and a small amusement arcade behind the beach, plus a farm shop and stall selling local fish.
"To explore more, walk barefoot until the sands merge into Waxham beach, home to seals and Waxham Barn café - a restored Tudor threshing barn."
