• Brancaster Staithe


Brancaster, or more properly, from the viewpoint of the cruising sailor, Brancaster Staithe is another of the attractive drying harbours on the north Norfolk coast. While not an option for those with deep drafted boats unable to take the ground, Brancaster should nonetheless be on the marine tourist’s list of places to visit.

Beautiful beaches, Scolt Head Island, a national nature reserve, salt marshes and bird and wild life typify this gem lying on the Norfolk Coastal Path between Hunstanton and Wells-next-the-Sea.

For the boating visitor, launching from the hard and going afloat over a high tide is perhaps the best option. Kayakers, dinghy sailors, sail boarders and even water skiers are active here. But visiting craft should contact the harbour office for advice on 07810 850334 or download the Brancaster Harbour guide from the National Trust website.
