The coastline of Suffolk stretches for 45 miles, and this an almost unbroken line of sandy beaches and dunes, designated as an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This is an area to unwind in, explore the attractive market towns, quiet secluded villages, and a labyrinth of waterways. Here you can enjoy the quiet pursuits of walking, bird-watching, and sightseeing, or, for the more energetic, cycling, sailing, swimming, and golf. There is a great variety of Suffolk cottages to rent by the sea where you can explore the unspoilt beaches and countryside inland.
One of the prettiest villages on the Suffolk Coast is Orford, and its lighthouse is one of the most iconic buildings.
