Waxham is a relatively undiscovered North Norfolk beach great for high-elevation full-pan drone photography.
This stretch of coast falls within the Norfolk Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As with near neighbour Horsey Beach, Waxham Beach is an excellent spot for seal spotting, and seals have been known to investigate swimmers in these waters.
The most southerly section of the beach is known as Waxham Sands, and there is a small holiday park alongside Waxham Summer Camp, a pop-up campsite on Poplar Farm. This area of the beach is usually busier than Waxham proper.
Unless you’re a local, you would likely never find Waxham Sands. It’s a genuinely stunning but deserted beach hidden amongst trees and bushes.
