Gorleston Beach recognised in the top ten percent of attractions worldwide

Tripadvisor has announced that Gorleston Beach has been awarded a Travellers' Choice Award after being ranked within the top 10 percent of attractions across the world, as well as eighth place in the Best Beaches in UK and Channel Islands.

Gorleston Beach

The Travellers' Choice Award celebrates attractions that "consistently deliver fantastic experiences to travellers around the globe" and "stand out by providing great service and experiences to guests". The list is drawn from the experiences of real travellers who have visited and left feedback on the site.

As a holiday destination, Gorleston is a brilliant choice in the Norfolk area if windsurfing, surfing or body-boarding is your favoured coastal activity. It also offers green cliffs, beautiful lawns, bowling greens, tennis courts and a trim-trail on the cliff top where views of the beach, harbour, pier, and wind turbines can be seen.

Gorleston's popularity has grown in recent years thanks to its installation of pastel, picturesque beach huts, which have proven popular with both locals and tourists, a fabulous bay with lifeguards on duty throughout summer months and numerous opportunities for free parking in the area.

With travel in recent times being very different to previous years, many travellers chose staycations in the UK over flying abroad for their holidays, even after restrictions eased. Many locals also chose to stay closer to home for their holidays which meant a newfound appreciation for their local attractions.

Cllr Carl Smith, leader of Great Yarmouth Borough Council, said: "Being awarded the Travellers Choice Award is a great honour and one that Gorleston deserves. We are very lucky to have such a stunning beach within our borough, which is one of many, and I'm glad tourists who have visited, perhaps for the first time, were left with a great impression."
