Streets and walkways were quiet on some parts of the north Norfolk coast on Saturday as people continued to follow lockdown restrictions despite glorious sunshine.
Beaches in Cromer and Sheringham were relatively quiet as families stayed at home on Saturday.
But it was a different story half an hour down the coast, according to police, who said they handed out eight fines amid reports that hundreds of people had visited Sea Palling.
Despite the low turnout in Cromer, chip shop Mary Jane's said it had seen a steady flow of customers.
Justin Couse, who works at Mary Jane's said: "There's been a few about, it's steady business, they're all keeping their distance and following the rules to the letter.
"Since we're only opening Friday, Saturday and Sunday, we're getting a lot of locals coming to get their fish on the weekend because we haven't been open during the week.
"There is a few faces we don't recognise out there, but they all seem to be being good."
