There’s something about breathing in the fresh sea air that’s good for your soul.

Here at Wellbeing Care, we love taking our residents out for walks along the Suffolk coast beaches. We find that it can help to clear and refresh their minds, whilst also providing them with sufficient exercise to help ensure they enjoy a restful night’s sleep.

Being out in the open is the most effective way to reconnect with nature, and a beach trip always puts a smile on our residents’ faces.

Are you keen to get out more and explore with your loved one? Take a look at our helpful guide to discover the 5 best Suffolk coast beaches:

Suffolk Coast Beaches: The Denes Beach

Walking along the seafront is a great opportunity for you and your loved one to enjoy each other’s company, whilst getting plenty of fresh air and exercise. The Denes Beach comprises both sand and shingle, offering wide stretches of beautiful beaches in the heart of Southwold for you and your loved one to enjoy. An often quiet beach, it’s backed by sand dunes and marshes, offering a stunning rural beach scene.

There are toilet facilities on the beach, with more amenities, such as cafes and restaurants, just a short walk away in Southwold, so you can stop and enjoy a refreshing drink during your walk.

Whilst there, be sure to pay a visit to the lifeboat museum, and take a stroll along the promenade to enjoy the individually decorated beach huts.

Visit Aldeburgh Beach

The pretty seaside town of Aldeburgh is a popular beach destination. With plenty of historical structures to visit, such as the Martello tower and converted windmill, the beach offers something for everyone. There’s also a Scallop-shaped monument on the beach, paying homage to the Suffolk-born composer, Benjamin Britten.

You’ll find plenty of facilities including a lovely fish and chip shop; the perfect way to finish your day together.

Take a Stroll Along the Southwold Pier Beach

Further along the coast from The Denes Beach, you’ll find Southwold Pier. 800 feet long, the pier was originally built in 1900, and has since undergone many refurbishments and restorations. It now features an array of restaurants and amusements, as well as offering spectacular views of the Suffolk coast.

Lining the beach is a string of brightly-coloured beach huts; take a stroll past them with your loved one along the promenade. There are plenty of amenities along the way, and it’ll lead you to the beautiful harbour.

Why not walk to the end of the pier together, where you can stop and enjoy an ice cream whilst admiring the views?

Suffolk Coast Beaches: Lowestoft

Just south of Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft is one of the most beautiful, bustling Suffolk coast beaches. It has a wealth of amenities, including public toilets, restaurants and cafes, ensuring you can spend the day there, whilst having access to all you need. Walk with your loved one along the seafront and promenade, enjoying the fresh sea air and endless coastal views.

Suffolk Coast Beaches: Walberswick Beach

Just a short walk from the pretty seaside village of Walberswick, Walberswick Beach has plenty of nearby facilities.

The sand and shingle coastline takes you along to the marsh and heathland of Walberswick Nature Reserve; a beautiful rural beach setting for all ages to enjoy.

One of the main reasons to visit Walberswick, though, is for the annual British Open Crabbing Championship. The winner is the first person to catch the largest crab in 90 minutes. It brings the community together, providing plenty of fun and laughter - and it’s a wonderful opportunity for you and your loved one to spend some quality time together.

Suffolk is a beautiful county, rich in both rural and coastal locations. If you’re considering moving your loved one to a care home in Suffolk, please contact our Wellbeing Care team for more information about our Suffolk-based homes.
