Burnham Overy Staithe

West Norfolk

 

The Norfolk coast from Terrington marsh to Blakeney is ,with the exception of Heacham and Hunstanton, a mass of tidal salt marsh rich in wildlife. There are miles of long sandy beach but the salt marsh can make accessing that challenging and that is where the North West Norfolk Coast appeal lies for so many. Remote desolate escapism miles from the busy world of problems.   The reality is of course that you aren't really that far from modern life but it feels remote and that's what matters. There's a simple magic to parking the car at Burnham Overy and wading across the harbour to the salt marsh and walking out to Scolt Head Island. Miles and miles of sand exposed on the low tide. If you're after real magic then a summers evening sunset with an incoming tide to float you back in without a care in the world, absolute bliss! 

Burnham Overy Staithe harbour is similar to Brancaster Staithe harbour but Brancaster is bigger and although very nice it some how lacks the magic of Burnham.
