Corton Beach

See here for a visit review A section of Corton beach 2 miles north of Lowestoft. Officially designated in 1979


Beach is clearly marked with Signs.


Update : From Shake : June 2012 It is no longer "clearly marked with signs" and hasn't been now for several years, as the need for a 'clothing-optional' part of the beach became redundant in 2009.

Before the de-designation the nudist bit was just north of Tramps Alley (an unmarked walkway down from Corton Lane to the beach, opposite the putting range and (also unsigned) free carpark) and that remains the stretch where naturists gather today.

Corton beach continues to be

Corton beach continues to be well used by locals and visitors. I was there today (4/7/15) with about 40 to 50 other naturists, couples as well as single men & women. Free car park as described above. Easy short walk and access from car park. Friendly bunch of people so well worth a vist.

Was on holiday in Yarmouth

Was on holiday in Yarmouth two weeks ago and visited Corton beach on the Thursday , beach is  not the best but about 30 naturists were enjoying the nice weather.

when i was there i only saw

when i was there i only saw the odd dog walker going past but a few fishermen were present just on the textile side but they were alright.

I'm a regular and can confirm

I'm a regular and can confirm there are rarely textile peepers. As Paul above says, the occasional fisherman who keep to themselves or the odd dog walker or rambler.

Like a lot of other people I

Like a lot of other people I thought Corton Beach was closed to naturists but after a message from a kind person on ITB I now know that this isn't true. So last Saturday, for the first time in years, I decided to re-visit the place where I first experienced public nudity. It may not be  the prettiest of beaches but on a hot sunny day it was great to be back. When I was last there the area of the beach designated for naturists was small but now there are no signs dictating where you can be unclothed so the 30/35 people visiting on Saturday were spread over quite a big stretch. There is a nice atmosphere and hopefully I will be able to return very soon

Sounds like somewhere to

Sounds like somewhere to visit and hope the sun is shining on next days off,so i can visit and enjoy naked day on the beach and  swim . Looking forward meeting new people .



The best thing about this

The best thing about this beach is, unlike most other naturist beaches, it's not a long walk to get there.

In total, from the free car park across the road, it can only be 300 - 400 metres to being nude on the beach.

Very open, no dunes or cover of any sort. Mainly pebbles with only small patches of sand and more locals than visitors. Usual selection of generally older men but sometimes a few couples too. Take everything you need (including a windbreak) 'coz no facilities !

Hope this helps anyone going

I finally got there yesterday (20/06/2017), even at the last minute it was an on-off thing as I was seriously worried it would be TOO hot. (Not something you can say often in this country.)

But it was overcast as the train approached Lowestoft, so my amended plans to go there, then Great Yarmouth, then dawdle my way home were amended once again with the idea that if I found my way to the beach and didn't like it I wouldn't be tempted again.

Once I'd been told that the bus doesn't go from the bus stop next to the station, and found that the bus station isn't well signposted (cut through the tiny shopping arcade and turn right), I found that bus drivers don't have a clue where Tramps Alley is, but luckily there'd been mention of Tesco at Pleasurewood Hills so I got off there (£3 return fare, about 12 minutes going, 15 back) and went to Google maps . Really simple walk, basically a straight line from the bus stop as if you're going to the amusement park, then there's a signposted footpath to 'The Beach 1/2 mile' (could do with the nettles and brambles cutting back) which leads past the golf course to the main road. Straight across, there's Tramps alley, going downhill at a reasonable slope, and there's the beach.

First thought? It's a beach. That simple. Sand, pebbles, etc. No facilities but thats not unusual. I turned left and set off, pebbles in my shoes within seconds. Only thing different was that there were more paragliders and hang-gliders around than sea gulls.

Probably 400 yards and my first nude, guy on his own. About 100 yards further I could see another single guy, so I decided to go closer to the sea wall between them. Weather still cloudy but coated myself with factor 15 (and renewed as needed) and sunbathed face up (partly because I couldn't spray all my back, and partly because I imagine it might be uncomfortable lying face down.

The guy that had been further on dressed and left quite soon after, couldn't see the first guy as there was a mound of dirt and grass between us but later on he walked down to the sea AND INTO IT. Don't care how hot it is, the sea is always cold, not my idea of fun at all.

In total I suppose I was there about 2 1/2 hours, very quiet, few single guys walked past, couple of guys together, and a m/f couple, none of whom seemed bothered by my nudity. 

While there I'd seen people walking along the seawall (behind me as I lay there) so tried that as I left, lot easier than trudging through the pebbles, but Tramps Alley seemed a lot steeper going up.

All in all, for me it's a lot easier to get too than Holkham even having to catch 3 trains (biggest change was 25 minutes at Norwich going out), journey from home to Lowestoft being 3hr 20. With a good connection I could be on the beach in just over 4 hours which compares to a journey to Holkham.

Unfortunately the day you

Unfortunately the day you picked to visit (20/6/17) was far cooler and more cloudy than recent days of late. I was there the previous day (19/6/17) which was very hot and sunny along with about 50 to 60 other naturists. Good to read your review and glad you enjoyed your visit.

If the 23 design arrives, I

If the 23 degs arrives, as forecast, then I shall take my bicycle via train from BSE there.

Come and say hi.
