On England’s east coast and jutting into the North Sea, Suffolk is without a doubt a good destination for an active, outdoorsy holiday. With prime locations for walking, birdwatching, boating, cycling, and fishing. Alternatively, grab a towel and lounge on the sand. The Suffolk Coast Path covers a 50-mile stretch from Felixstowe to Lowestoft and passes through two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This path gives a number of options for walkers and cyclists to get out and explore. The diversity of the Suffolk coastline means there is something for everyone – from sand to shingle, from reed bed to fishing port, with rich wildlife estuaries too.
Most beaches in Suffolk have remained unchanged since the 19th Century. Many of Suffolk’s beaches are unspoilt and fresh. You will find wild beaches and believe yourself the only person between sand and sky in the world.
We at 2cHolidays love the Suffolk Coast, join us as some of the team share their top choices!

I absolutely love Aldeburgh! The pebble beach is backed by beautiful pastel-coloured villas. There are fishing boats dotted along the shingle and sheds with crabbing pots making this in my opinion one of the most photographic beaches in Suffolk. No trip to Aldeburgh is complete with out a visit to the ‘Scallop’ sculpture located on the beach itself. We always head into town for Fish & Chips and ice cream.

Lowestoft will always hold a special place in my heart. It’s a classic British seaside town with beautiful sandy beaches. Its Blue Flag award definitely means we always know the beach is clean and safe. My family and I have holidayed here for years. In addition to the beach Lowestoft has so much more to offer including a Pier, Amusements, Crazy Golf and much more. North Denes Holiday Park is ideal for us as we can get to the beach within minutes due to the park being located on the front itself.

Thorpness is a magical enchanting coastal village. I love walking along the quite shingle beach which is lined with pretty pastel-coloured villas and cottages. Unlike the more popular resorts Aldeburgh has no kiosks along the seafront which means you can enjoy the landscape without distraction. A stones throw from the beach is the Meare, we love jumping in a row boat and exploring the Peter Pan themed islands before heading to The Dolphin for excellent food!
