Access to the beach, without eroding the dunes, is afforded by a boardwalk.


Erosion of the fragile dune system is always a problems.


The dunes have been conserved by fencing, between the beach and beach road.

Sizewell beach, with the nuclear stations, Sizewell 'A', the large, dirty-grey building, and Sizewell 'B', with a light blue dome and dark blue walls. The beach here is wide at 50 metres and shelves gradually down to high tide level. View is northwards.



Sizewell beach has been treated to fine new toilets, and a revised car park layout. The low timber building in the centre is the cafe, and on the skyline above it are the old coastguard cottages.
