Explore Thorpe Bay
Originally simply known as Thorpe, but later renamed Thorpe Bay after the railway station, to indicate the seaside location. As the name suggests, Thorpe Bay has a beautiful mixed sand and shingle beach. It has received a Quality Coast award for excellent beach cleanliness and for safe pedestrian access. There is a cycle path the length of the seafront, a children’s paddling pool and a selection of cafes and restaurants nearby, including some with decking leading straight onto the beach. Beautiful beach huts also line the shoreline at Thorpe Bay.
The area has numerous leisure facilities, including Thorpe Bay Yacht club, Thorpe Hall Golf Club, a bowls club and Thorpe Bay Lawn tennis club.
